Kitchen island unit

Got the components for a kitchen island unit back from the sprayer today. The Blue T&G panels are a bold choice against the tinted oak. I designed this in close collaboration with my client who is transforming their home. This is phase 1 of 2, the next job is a bespoke pantry / larder unit. Looking forward to fitting this in Hove, Sussex.

Glueing up

Spent most of Friday preparing and then glueing up this frame. It is made from European oak and is jointed with the Festool Domino systems. It is a display cabinet in a Sussex Museum. I will be fitting LED lighting on it tomorrow and the adding the glass shelves once it arrives

Busy preparing a cabinet for delivery. This has been polished to a 35% sheen with a tint to make it look darker. 3 LED spot lights have been installed on the top panel which have a dimmable switch. There are 4 0mm thick toughened glass shelves behind two sliding doors. Lots of bits to get ready for delivery on Monday
