Bespoke Kitchen from Tiernan Roe Fine Woodworking

I did this kitchen during the summer; but only got the pictures recently. The counter tops are maple and the doors are painted red deal. I cut a stopped chamfer on the frames to lighten the appearance and to highlight the hand made aspect of the work. The larder unit between the two doors fits into an alcove that had previously housed a forced air heating unit. The drawers feature full extension drawer runners and the handles are brushed stainless steel. The previous post featured the living room of this house.

Contemporary Built-in Shelves

Here's a built-in unit I did before I started the blog. The client wanted deep shelves that were irregular and appeared to be part of the wall. I made up the shelf boxes first and attached them to the wall; plumbed up all the faces and then laid sheets of MDF on top. I cut out the openings afterwards. The unit was then painted the same colour as the walls to blend it in. The drawers underneath have storage for approximately 150 CDs.
