Well mrs. Moore got a very nice kitchen didn't she? I chose not to show my wife those pics. But she was quite happy with this one, which we fitted in the shed where my father's junk was stored. A bunch of old anchors and several miles of rope, can you believe it?

So now I have a functioning summer house of my own, ten meters from the shore of the Baltic sea.

Here's the kitchen:

Very nice job. Is this a trend? My wife is talking about our kitchen now and she has seen pictures of Chuck Moore's kitchen.

I'm assuming it's all brazilian rosewood right? Looks great!

It was a pain to bleach all the rosewood until it looked just like fir! And painting those pesky ebony drawer fronts white... you wouldn't believe the number of coats I had to put on!

I know what you mean. I used snakewood for my cabinets but had to cover it with koa contact paper to make it look more Hawaiian.

Very nice set up Sven. Lots worse places to have to go to work.

Nice Job Sven. Seeings how Chuck and I were trading emails back and forth about our respective kitchens, I guess I'll have to throw my hat in the ring as well. Might as well include the entertainment center.

SFPOD!!!

I watched a show the other day about million dollar rooms. One room was a kitchen. It had koa cabinets. Thank goodness you used koa "laminate", Chuck. hehehe.

LOL Chuck. I have some beautiful walnut burl in the shop earmarked for a tenor someday. If I ever get the time.

BTW, how difficult is it to bend a highly figured burl?
