the curly maple kitchen we have been working on from the shop to its new home. it was trickier than it looks. typically, templates for the counter tops are made after the counters are installed, but because of the timing, and, in particular, the long lead time on the sink, we had to make the templates and the sample sink as we started the cabinets. click the photos to enlarge them ..

the island we made back in may, (another challenging project), the soft corners on the wall openings, the owner made concrete floor tiles, and the curving steel and marble stairway...
all done; the table's in ...
