This one is in hard maple with a pigmented lacquer finish. The island is also maple but with a deep burgundy stain and clear topcoat. I also designed and built the china cabinet visible to the right.
Quartersawn African Mahogany with eastern white Maple string inlay was used in this kitchen. Notice also the matching frame around the window. Detail like this requires absolute accuracy, a standard I observe in all of my work. The floor is cork with toe kick lighting everywhere.
This one is on South Hill and is done entirely in Hickory (Pecan) heartwood. I also deigned and built the custom table in the foreground, also in Hickory heart.
This kitchen is located in "The Terraces" on Lake Coeur D A'lene, Idaho. I designed this kitchen working directly with the homeowner using "Cabinet Vision" software that will render a drawing in photograph quality.
This quarter sawn African Mahogany kitchen shows some of the beautiful "ribbon" effect of this wood. This one is near the Spokane Country Club.
This kitchen is done in cherry. The large island has a cook's desk at a 30" height on the end and is turned to allow adequate passage for traffic through this area. On the far side is a cooktop at 36" height and the desk cubbies and breakfast bar has a top at 42" above the floor.
This one is done in rustic (knotty) alder with a stain and clear coat. The contrasting white bead board is quite striking. This kitchen is at Medical Lake.
The basic material in this kitchen is eastern hard maple with a faux finish. The posts are called sentry posts because they guard the face of the cabinetry. All the doors and drawers are soft close in an inset application. Note how the granite top follows the posts.
I used cherry in this one. It is a very simple Shaker style yet quite elegant. There is no stain on these cabinets. It has developed a "patina" through UV exposure.
Northern Red Oak was used in this spacious kitchen. It is located in a new home near Mt. Spokane.
