Macassar Ebony Custom Kitchen Cabinets Florida
This home was designed and lived in by the original Dean of Architecture at UF. The clients were especially sensitive to restoring the home to its original intended state, however the kitchen was a mess…
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.

These cabinets are typical of our work, matching grain, FSC certified plywood construction,water based finish, thick edge banding, cared for details in build, finish, and install. I ask visitors to run their hands along the edges and corners and get a feel for our work, it’s comfortable to use and touch, typical for us and often rare to find in others.

Black Cypress Custom Outdoor Kitchen
Black Cypress is the most rare of the river recovered cypress. It is only found on the outside edge of some logs. The minerals from the mud it sat in for a hundred years is what gives it it’s color and what probably dulls the knives of our machines.
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.
Glass Door and Bead Board Custom Kitchen Cabinets
This kitchen is in Gainesville’s Duck Pond Historic District. The neighborhood was all but forgotten in the 1980’s, but since the charm of these old houses doesn’t die easily people have caught on and their value recognized and the restorations are ongoing. Our client’s home in particular needed a major make over and they were committed to maintaining the homes vintage appeal. Good job Claire.
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.
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.
Bird’s Eye Maple Custom Kitchen Cabinets
Our clients came to us from Jacksonville with a detailed drawing of their dream kitchen. The clients wanted a kitchen of furniture, which happens to be our specialty. We decided to use Shaker profile quarter sawn maple frames and figured Bird’s Eye Maple panels. All of the straight grain solid maple came from only two trees. The matching is a very pleasant effect never found in factory built commodity cabinets.
Red Elm Grain Matched Cabinets
Similar grain structure as White Oak with more warmth, it’s more unique and under less deforestation pressure.
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.
Red Elm Custom Kitchen Cabinets
Dwell magazine features custom veneer work in almost every issue. If you ever read the magazine and see the kitchens pay attention and follow the wood graphic. The lines of wood grain are continuos across the panels, razor tight reveals and often bizarre species of wood. The makers are using specialty veneer that they specifically select and then glue to panels themselves, like I have done here. We are able pick the color, the graphic, species and layout. The maker is in control of the composition and the quality. I was formally trained to do this work in California, I apprenticed with a Art Deco maker in Denver. This is a style and technique that offers unlimited possibilities. Contemporary.

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.
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.
