Window trim in a kitchen I'm finishing up.

Nice work I will say though that I really dislike the design. Having larger windows (I know not always feasible) without the cabinets above the windows would make the kitchen feel much larger and nicer.

Excellent work.  That had to take a lot of skill and patience to fit in place.

While I'm not crazy about the window design, I think your workmanship comes through in spades.  Well done, Tom.

Looks good Tom.
How did you match the curve did you cut a template from the window?
Are you doing the rest of the kitchen too?

Thank you.

No room for larger windows. Below is a picture of the exterior of the home. It is a block/stucco building in southwest/Spanish style. As you can see the circle top windows work well in the context of the building. The 2 arch top doors (in the photo, there are 4 in the wall) are in the kitchen area also.

Thanks.

The windows are half circles, used cord and rise to set the MFS with a 3/16" reveal.

Yes, this is the home I asked about the area between the skewed cabinets ((last September I believe). The cabinets are the new ones. I hate the finish but this is what she wanted.

Great job as always.

I must comment one one thing that I'm sure you had no control over.  That is the smallest kitchen sink I have ever seen in a modern home.

The sink will be replaced by a CorStone corner butterfly sink. It has been on order for 11 weeks , about 3 more weeks before it arrives. This is the womens lake home, I put that sink in to give her something to use.

Congrats!
Meant to ask, what is that wood/finish?

If the CorStone corner butterfly sink would ever arrive I could get this one done. I ordered the sink 11 weeks ago, it will be a few more before it arrives (so I'm told).

The wood is maple. The stain is a mixed SW BAC, top coat KA+ MRE. She wanted a mushroom look, I had to wipe it to be blotchy. She did not like it wiped even.

Beautiful job Tom, just not my cup of tea.  What the buyer wants, the buyer gets!  Bill
