Artisans will participate in Kitchen projects production custom hutches, tables, pie safes, and other stand alone pieces. We are not a kitchen contractor, and will not design, build, or install a custom kitchen.

A few new pictures from Eric's kitchen, breaking ground in February of 2000 the final touches on the woodworking progressed through December of 2002. This project has been a long term effort, a prime example of a shoemaker's kids wandering barefoot we're still attempting to finish this project in between work for our clients.

As a hobby chef, Eric spent a great deal of time researching and planning the design and layout of his kitchen, considering room a wide variety of commercial appliances and dedicated workstations. This room consists of quarter sawn "beetle hole" oak faced cabinets, structured using lumber core plywood. One hundred square feet of custom Corian countertop including a feature sliding cutting board based on ideas from HGTV.

The floor plan required the removal of the original dining room wall, extending the kitchen by almost fourteen feet. This allowed for the open counter bar peninsula, a coffee station, and a view between eating and food preparation areas. The change drastically modernized Eric's home, and included solid oak ship lapped wainscoting and custom-built corner units in the dining room, as well as oak trim and crown molding throughout the newly remodeled rooms. Commercial features include a professional six-burner cook top, grill and griddle, double convection oven, pot filler faucet, and dedicated prep sink.

The kitchen layout has been well tested preparing food for over 200 guests attending the Saperstein's annual pig roast. Each year the pig roast show cases new projects and completed past projects for family, friends, and clients. 2001 marked our fifth annual, and Eric even took time out to build his own pig cooker.
