CUSTOM KITCHENS

Handcrafted custom cabinetry built for the Oyer residence in NJ. This fine cabinetry is made from a northern hardwood called Butternut. It is a member of the walnut family, and it is often referred to as "white walnut", it is sought after where a lighter color wood is desired, and the wood ages to a beautiful and rich light brown over time. To highlight the natural beauty of the wood, it was finished using a 7 step process. Wood is first hand sanded to a flawless finish, then, sealed with a catalyzed vinyl sealer to ensure an excellent bond with the subsequent topcoats. After the sealer has dried and has been sanded, two coats of a post-catalyzed conversion varnish are applied to guarantee the maximum durability that is necessary for the amount of use kitchen cabinets to take over the years. 

The face frames, mitered raised panel doors, and drawer fronts are all fabricated using solid lumber. Our cabinet bodies are constructed from 3/4” prefinished maple veneer plywood (no particleboard or melamine), and 1/2” maple veneer plywood backs for added rigidity and strength when securing to walls. Interior 3/4” maple veneer plywood adjustable shelves feature solid wood edging for superior weight capabilities and are supported by 5mm shelf pins. 

Drawer boxes are made from 5/8” solid maple dovetailed front and back. Matching maple drawer bottoms complement the drawer boxes. Tired of having drawers full of silverware slamming shut? Not here! Fully concealed under mount Accuride brand soft-close drawer slides ensure years of smooth and quite operation. 

Notice too, the custom wine bottle rack requested by the homeowners, nestled in the upper cabinets. We do not use any filler strips or false panels when building our kitchens. Since all our cabinets are built specifically for your kitchen, we make them the size they should to be, not what comes as a “standard” size from most manufacturers.

CUSTOM BATHROOMS

Custom master bath built for the Bish family in Binghamton, NY. After building a custom bar in the game room area of the Bish household, the Mrs. asked us if we would be up to the task of building and designing their master bath cabinets…our answer…certainly!

We were asked to match other wood work in their home…and so we did. Cabinets are constructed of solid maple and maple veneers, (no particleboard or melamine) and finished in a colonial cherry stain specified by the customer.

Beautiful solid raised panel arched doors adorn the base cabinets as well as the countertop units that are used to conceal everything from curling irons and hair driers to toiletries. Countertop drawers are used to keep small incidentals like shavers and toothpaste out of the way. Our standard 7 step finishing process is used here in the master bath where humidity and moisture are often a factor.
