Fantastic Design Work and superb attention to detail. The one with the corner column is a work of art.
GREAT Project

chairs in the second picture—oh yah..

only thing that i have to compare this with is a TV stand we made and have now moved to the kitchen. We took out the table and chairs and put the new “island” in.

Three great jobs. I vote for number two. Love the tile job. I love those chairs/stools!

This is one of the few times my boss lets me install anything at work. If you look to the right, you’ll see the bar.

Yeah, this is our showroom. I found the best way to design a kitchen is to know what the guys in the field has to go through, so I learned to install cabinets, granite. Installing one kitchen is easy, doing it day in and out- quickly is what separates the mens from the boys. So I’ll stick to the design part and play with wood working as a hobby.

can’t see the island that is also the breakfast bar in this photo, but this is a kitchen I did and installed, in a house I trimmed two years ago. I also build a wine cellar, and dozen more buildins for this house. some elements of the kitchen was bought at a salvage store the rest I had to repair or build to match.

it is a pass thru that goes under the back steps and then their is a little wet bar for wine also in that found space in the hall. it’s kind of deep but it passes thru to the dinning room.

Ahh, your work is sweet, MrTrim. Nice jobs. Almost makes me want to turn pro… NOT!

The kitchen is the last room in the house to get the refurb. I have to finish the foyer, library and replace the last four interior doors before that happens. I’ve got a couple of designs for the kitchen which turn the galley with a peninsula into an L shaped with a freestanding bar/prep cabinet. I’ve also included coffering for that area as well as the breakfast nook and foyer. But I won’t let mama loose with a sledge hammer just yet—I’ve insisted on having ALL of the new appliances purchased and the cabinetry complete before ANY demolition begins.

Never seen such a woman with a sledge… plumb scary!

always,
J.C.
