Wrapping up the last details on the Adams Street kitchen. You can read more about the cabinets and the larger remodel project on the client’s blog, Eugene Modern Monkey.
The design, by David Schmitz of engage:ARCHITECTURE, has been a treat to build. A relatively rare opportunity to build frameless cabinets, with carcases made from mitered appleply plywood manufactured by Eugene’s own States Industries. Nothing to do with apples, the plywood has 13 alternating veneer laminates of alder and birch, with an exterior veneer of maple. The edge detail, then, is a nice contrast of light and dark; when you miter the corners of the case, those lines continue around the face of the cabinet. A sharp look.
The doors and drawer fronts are inset from the front of the cabinets 3/16″ and are a combination of white laminate over appleply (with more exposed edges) and accents of walnut, matching a thick walnut shelf over the sink, walnut filler strips and toe kicks, and the 8/4 western walnut countertop. All solid sawn walnut for the project came from my favorite supplier, Clifford Goins of Curly Burly Milling in Cottage Grove.
