This is our latest in far out designs.
The homeowner has ponderd and debated on just how he would like his “Pirate Galley” would look like. This is the end result after getting the go ahead 3 months ago.
The cabinets are clear alder with a heck of a lot of custom distressing.It was acomplished with the use of a belt sander. a grinder and a lot of sanding to make all grooves soft with no sharp edges. The desire was to have a smooth worn look rather than the typicall ” beat to heck” look.
Then the finishes were applied to give each section its own unique apearance. The island is a brown with black accents while the wall cabinets were a black with brown accents. The base barrels are white oak whisky barrels from Kentucky Barrell company. We had to figure out how to cut into a barrell with out it flying apart. Construct the doors and install the lazy susans. While the uppers are cedar from Maine Barrell company. (Kentucky Barrell has some serious issues with honesty and customer service incompentance. I would NOT recomend useing them) Due to the cedar barrells being constructed for display use. (not to any kind of cabinet specs) We had to dissasembel them and use the parts to construct the doors. A huge pain but it paid off.
The granite work was done by a man that learned how to apply copper to granite while employed at Disney Land. Very talented man.
For more information you can see the complete project on our website / blog.
Thanks, Dion

This is unreal! Awesome workmanship. The “worm” look is surreal – that must have taken quite a bit of time to pull off. Very nice job.
