Cream & Walnut Kitchen.

While relaxing in the fabulous sunshine over lunch last week I had a thought that it would be a great opportunity over the holiday weekend to visit my recently installed kitchen and grab a few pictures. With other than the final flooring to be laid the kitchen is finished and my clients are making good use of it arranging the numerous items in the convenient storage places, so with surrounding furniture moved and dog trained we commenced. The style of the kitchen is clean lined where everything had to line through conforming to one and other. I recieved a great deal of input from my clients which made my job relatively easy as they both had a firm idea of what they desired, I mainly transformed that idea into reality.

The worktops are Black American Walnut and are finished to date with 6 coats of Tung oil, this is by far one of the best finishing treatments for a wooden worktop lending itself well to ease of maintenance and safe for food products. Both the paint for the doors/drawers and the lacquer on the Walnut doors is 2 pack which is a very durable spray finish well suited for areas where finger pulls are applied.




The island area created a great deal of working out and is really the focus of the kitchen area with knee space around the convex edge keeping both aspects of the room together. I have attached a couple of production images (please excuse the poorer quality) with the bottom image illustrating the curved doors being created by a series of 3mm MDF layers bonded together and held under pressure over a former in a bag press until the adhesive cures, this process is called lamination.



Our current project underway at the workshop is to fit out the interior of a horse lorry to include a bathroom and kitchen/living space all finished in Cherry wood with a cream leather upholstery, shall be an interesting job so say the least! Watch this space……
