Interesting left side boxing in the "toe kick" area.  Never seen that before with other cabinets.

 That details pretty common in custom cabinets, I've done it before with thicker stock , full inch then sit a 'normal' F/E pnl on top of it . Attached with biscuits. Works really well around island and or peninsula cabs.

 You won't see that on  any of the Borg's  cabinets.

 Making cabinets look like furniture is quite common today as well. Adding turned legs , bigger corbels , mixing stained and painted cabinets together in the same space, making  a sink cabinet deeper so it projects out / doesn't line up with the others into the kitchen a few inches. 

 Doing a wall of cabinets like a china hutch etc.   
When in doubt , build it stout with something you know about .

You got it, PEG.  My granddad and family used to split red cedar shakes for their houses - made them burn real good. ::)

The old red cedar logs were many times 3 feet or more in diameter.

 I did do a stint as a Company Commanders aide right after boot camp, pushed 4 companies thru to thier service week , the sailors here will know what that means, 5 or 6 week of boot camp,  sort of a transition period. Lots of dental work gets done some sort of down time from the normal school , boot camp routine, etc for the recruits.

 I had some darned fine marching companies, I liked to march  :) Most sailors don't but we made it "fun" , well it was for me  ;D the 'Raisins' ( a nickname for a USN recruit at the time, I think due to they way a civilian wears a watch cap/ ski hat just sort of pulled over the head  , not rolled and pulled down tight like they required it back then in the navy) looks sort of like a black raisin on yer head!  Anyway I had fun and they could march at least those last few weeks of boot camp which really is pretty much the end of marching for a sailor.

 We move more herd like post boot camp rofl

Thanks for clearing up the "froe" PEG, thought Glenn had some secret ancestors...  but we all probably have  heh 

That sink cabinet looks really nice - just got a chance to see pictures - & of course, the mallet & handle look like fine furniture  c*

I take great pride in my obnoxious, arrogant attitude.  It's taken me years to cultivate these fine qualities. ::)

I take it as a compliment, PEG. :)

 Cherry fireplace mantel :


  the sides wrap back on the side walls of the chase.

The grids minic a picture frame the owners have you'll see te marble behind the wood , I used a left over piece of P.Lam to show what that will look like.

It's a odd mantel as the orginal builders didn't center the fireplace in the wall space so it's a offset reveal / unequal on the sides. Also when they set the stove it wasn't flat on the wall and they never straighten that out so the marble was laid in plane with the stove so the top will also follow that plane instead of the sheet rocked wall.



 


 


 

 



  The crown and mantel depth will also be different than the front over hang as theres a passage way and they don't want the mantel top to "jump out" at your eyeas you walk thru that area. So the front mantel projection is 7" + / - 1/4" and the sides projection will be 4 5/8" + / - 1/4".
Thats why the sub crown only runs along the front .


 



 

 Still needs stained and finished before I can install it.


When in doubt , build it stout with something you know about .

 Ask and you will receive.  OR I finally got it installed ;)

  It even fits :) You can see the laser line on the wall , I had allowed for some scribing. I like my scribe strips "built in" most folks just apply a flat scribe / added trim piece , if you think it thru , generally , you can just allow extra wide styles where you need them and make it look cleaner so no added B/S trim strips.

 


 


 View looking at the crown support and they become the screw blocks for the mantel top as well. I attached it to the wall hiding those screws thru the unstained wood that you see.

       


 All done , picture rehung ,

 

 I have to go back today I forgot my chop saw and have some base shoe to install on a existing built -in unit.  I hope to get some better photo's them.

 Note to self , clean the camera lens  ::)
