Undulated Kitchen Island
« on: January 13, 2015, 12:10 AM »
Hi Guys,

One of our customers requested something unique for their kitchen, and they had seen a few products i had produced with the HL 850, and were set on this !!

Im not personally enthralled with the color choice, or oak wood selection, but the customer was very insistent   [unsure]

But nevertheless, they absolutely love it, and i now have 4 more pieces of similar size to make as a result  ;D

Looks good for what it is.  Did you domino the edge joints? I guess with the texture there was no real need to worry about the boards lining up [laughing]

My sentiments exactly !!

I did throw in some dominos for glue up just to help out, but yes, a flat surface is not required !!!  [big grin]

Nice Job, Dave!

If you ever have a job like that where you could use an extra hand, let me know and I'll show up just to learn from you. I'm not a lot of good for hard labor, but I do the 'human clamp' trick pretty well.

Looks good Dave. Not what I would want but I can imagine that in a martini bar somewhere...

Curious as to what "other products" you had produced with the 850 that set them off?

Im not personally enthralled with the color choice, or oak wood selection, but the customer was very insistent   [unsure]
Everyone likes that 'brown'...and oak. I like the before stain look myself.
I think the counter top is incorrect. Too much going on there. They probably should have picked a solid color for the island.
The kitchen cabinets looks good, did you make those too?

But nevertheless, they absolutely love it, and i now have 4 more pieces of similar size to make as a result  ;D

Thanks Tim

I'll post some pictures when I find then, but I've made quite a few things utilizing the 850 rangeing from Faux beams to solid doors. Some people really really dig that look, and most still think its a hand produced finish  [tongue]

Yes, we made the cabinets also.

Thanks

Dave

I love that textured look. I was just at lumber yard and they were selling custom textured and reclaimed looking ply sheets starting at $900 a sheet so tell your customer you saved them a fortune.

I think it's a cool look!

I was surprised they used laminate countertops.  That is kind of a low budget choice considering the custom island.  Around here it's all granite even in a lot track homes.

Nice work!!!

I like the look. (probably more so before the dark stain) I think the execution however is outstanding. I suspect it's not easy keeping it from looking contrived.

Yeah, the tops were a source of contention. We hit some unforeseen circumstances during to remodel that really ate into their budget, so ultimately they went with some hi-def laminate.

However, we are putting a nice color corian on the island for the breakfast bar.

absolutely astonishing work.
i must say that it's the best i have seen, perhaps ever.
totally in envy of your skills, i wanna be as good as that!

so tempted to get into a lecture on why your other video is so wrong, but i don't want to take away from the sheer brilliance of your craftmanship. let's just say i admire your balancing skills and leave it at that.

is there more vids of your work, possibly in progress? i'd love to see them.
