Black Richlite Modern Cabinets

It’s always exciting when clients come to me with ideas that I already want to do. A perfect match you could say. Richlite & river recovered old growth cypress facade’. the end panels, doors and drawers are all typical 3/4″ thick. We used 1/2″ Richlite for the counters and did small 1/8″ chamfers on their edges to differentiate. The floating shelves and the open cabinet are lit with LED’s. Super classy for super classy people.

Modern Zebrano Custom Office Cabinets

Custom designed to fit our clients needs, of course. A place for a paper shredder, file cabinets, writing utensils, under mount LED lights on the floating shelves.
The wood used is Zebrano, also known as Zebra wood. What is significant here is that typical quarter sawn Zebrano has very straight lines. This Zebrano is curly figured, these lines are much more interesting. I received a phone call a couple of years ago by an architectural millwork company that was closing it’s doors and had been sitting on this veneer for almost 20 years.. I bought it all.. I haven’t seen it anywhere else.

Tamo, also known as Japanese Ash was the obvious choice for our client. We found slices of this veneer over 24″ wide, so we bought all of it. We have more of their wood left so this kitchen can be yours! Please enquire.


Fumed Curly Eucalyptus Modern Custom Kitchen Cabinets

I first began restoring historic cracker and shot-gun houses similar to the style found in New Orleans in the late 90’s. We would salvage little bits of detail and often replicate it in often weird and creative ways to tie the new renovation back together with the old. This remodel is a fun reminder that in a mid century home you can look around and maybe you’ll find a gold chandelier that at first, seems like it should go the way of burgundy shag carpet, but in fact, it’s an oppurtunity to bring the old into the contemporary. My cleint certainly has a keen eye and great taste and it was a pleasure to work with her vision.


Figured Eucalyptus Bar Cabinets

Figured Fumed Eucalyptus is a material we have worked with several times over the years. A dark sophisticated wood with a lot of depth. At a glance it’s nice, but with inspection, it’s marvelous.

A proud collaboration with Amanda Carreon of Jerome H. Davis Interiors.

Teak Custom Kitchen Cabinets

As soon as our clients saw our sample of the straight grain quarter sawn Teak the decision was pretty easy. They have a mid century furniture aesthetic and good taste = a no brainer.


Zebrawood Custom Kitchen Cabinets

A nice galley kitchen of Zebrano ( also known as Zebrawood) with the grain running horizontally. White solid surface counter top and tile work also installed by us, because Patrick like’s to work weekends especially when his wife wants her kitchen back.

Maple Flatpanel Custom Kitchen Cabinets

Our Maple flat panel cabinetry is a great way to have the contemporary look, achieve excellent durability and quality, and we do it affordably. The boxes, drawers and hardware are the same as we use on all of our custom builds but what cuts costs is the facade. We use an epoxy acrylic pre-finished domestic maple plywood that we edge with with solid maple. The finishing and veneering is eliminated saving us a lot of time and you, a handsome amount of money.


Marks Claro Walnut Custom Kitchen Cabinets

This kitchen had a pretty bad design and was in worse shape. It’s amazing what we learn not to do when we see an old kitchen, or sometimes new kitchens for that matter. The client has a very keen design sensibility and it was a really great experience working with him. He had lots of design opinions, specific needs, and Harold and Maude quotes that made the job a lot of fun and very interesting. These, like all of our cabinets are made using domestic, no added formaldehyde FSC certified sheet goods. All of our Blum drawer rollers are made in the USA as well.


Heart Pine Custom Kitchen Cabinets

This custom kitchen is a contemporary take on a traditional style. We have grain matched solid wood running horizontally  across the lower cabinets. The upper cabinets are traditional shaker profile frame and panel with glass doors above. All of the drawers open with Blum Tip-On Hardware. The heart pine was salvaged from downtown Gainesville historic homes that were torn down to provide real estate for a new development. The boards were de-nailed and re-sawn. The rusty nail holes are still present.


Retro Vintage Custom Kitchen Cabinets

Custom Retro Kitchen Cabinets, Florida
Painted flat panel custom kitchen cabinets to mimic the style of old metal cabinets that I still find in houses. Aluminum edging wraps around the vintage edition boomerang Formica. We also placed aluminum edging on the top of the back splash and custom cut the aluminum for the valance to play off the boomerang theme, also found on the pulls. The sink is under mount, a wonderful touch not typically found with laminate counters. The backsplash is a glass subway tile, turned 45 degrees, laid in a box weave pattern, subtly picking up on the boomerang theme. The floor is Marmoleum, the precursor to linoleum. Marmoleum is made of linseed oil and jute fibers. The restored range is vintage.
The client is a recovering journalist who wrote in her blog about the experience.
