Thank goodness it's done

Here's a job I just finished. If something could go wrong it did but my part is done.

I built and installed the wine rack, the new stove vent surround, added the feet, the vertical trim on the angled sections and a new raised end panel under the bar. Oh I also fixed a few doors that didn't match. The painter painted and the owner is going to faux finish glaze them.

Anyway there is a before picture of the hood but I lost the other before pics.












I'll update pics when the owner finishes his part.

Although this was like the job from hell. I got another big job from it and possibly another one after that, so all is good.

Sorry guys i fixed it. I was half a sleep most of the time and evidently fully asleep the rest of the time. I was only up posting because my dog woke up and was having a fit keeping me what i thought was awake.

Well the toe kick is small (2") because they double tiled the the floor. Pavers first then ceramic over them. That is what caused me allot of grief. Made if almost impossible to cut the base so i could install the wine cabinet. I had to use one of those vibrating cutters to rip it at the same height as the ceramic. Even that was difficult because of the mortar. it also gave little room for working while making and installing the feet.


Very little sleep and now it's off to work at my moms.

Keep in mind that the little angle area where i put the thin beaded panel was blank because. The original cabinet were natural Maple with a glaze. The original cabinet guy tried to put Fur fluted door casing with a 45 ripped on both sides as trim with those cabinets with the natural finish.

I turned down the original job because she is a difficult person. I love her as a friend but I told her husband I couldn't take on a full kitchen job with her as the client. He understood but they roped me in to fix and add a few things anyway.

It always bemuses me when people go from a nice natural wood to painted white for cabinets. I get the appeal of white cabinets for resale, but I just like wood much better and could never bring myself to paint a finish that looks as nice as that one did.

I agree. It's sad because the house is only 3 years old at the most.
In there defense you could see every nail whole because they nailed right through they face frames and did a crappy job of hiding them. I Never use nails through the Face of anything that is stain Grade. Never.

Life is what you do when you can't get to sleep.

Well done Rich, well done.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Definitely well done. That vent hood looks eerily like mine. The molding is a little different, but otherwise, it's an exact match.

Looks great RR. I love the hood unit. Yeah it's said to see wood painted, especially when it's beautiful as that.

have a blessed and prosperous day in Jesus's Awesome Love,
Tim

Outstanding work! Love the crown. Did you cope or miter? Either way it looks great. Yeah I'm not a fan of painting wood either. I really don't much like staining either personally, just do it when I have to. That is some good looking work though.
