My kitchen

Well this is my first post here at Homerefurbers. I’m a regular on Lumberjocks so some of my stuff is posted there. I’ll write a blog about me to introduce myself but thought I’d throw this out there first since I really don’t have to think to much. Anyhow, this is the kitchen I built for the house I’m living in now. It was my house but they are going to foreclose due to hard times. So the new owner will have a new kitchen, bath cabinet, mantle, mouldings throughout, and an updated girls room which I will post picks of soon. This kitchen is made out of Alder. Because I am a woodworker money is always an issue so I had to keep the existing appliances. Cabinetry has been my profession for a long time so I have to inform you that this is technically a “professional” job since technically a “professional” did the work. LOL. Anyhow, enjoy.

I am very sorry to hear you have to loose your house. I am sure you talked to your bank about options to make it work for both of you. Tough times.

The kitchen is very nice. I like what you did with alder. You made very nice use of slide-out storage.
Thanks for the post.

Thanks guys. I did talk to the lender for the house. The problem is that I went out of business and now I don’t have an income. And if I get a job it won’t be enough income to qualify me to keep the loan. Soooo…. foreclosure it is.

Beautiful cabinets, I love all those nifty slide outs. Sorry to hear about your hard times. I’m sure you’ll pull through, someone with your kind of skill level should be able to find work in no time. Good luck friend.

You have some killer details in that kitchen. Did you build the shelving on the lazy susan? I’ve been using RevaShelf and have been wanting to get away from the plastic look. The roll outs all look custom. The extra wide stile and rails. The wide crown. The toe kick details. Pretty good work.

Thanks guys! Dennis, the lazy susan is a Rev-a-Shelf product. It’s their wood series. You will be surprised at the quality of these susans. There is a post on lumberjocks and although I won’t say it there this product is constructed much better then the way they are describing how to make it. I made the right decision with these. The other convenience options are Rev-a-shelf too.

really nice job on the kitchen! I love those pullouts next to the stove, you can really make useful storage space from small otherwise empty, useless space.

Wow, even the toe kick is high end, nice job, love the slide out storage, hang in there.
