Use LED under counter lights - Not sure I liked the reflection from the surface of the stainless counter top

It was easier for the designer to draw the elevation than it was for me to figure out the detailing

These 2 doors are full overlay retractable pocket doors. If you notice, the cabinets over the washer hide the washer hoses and shut off valves. I leave the back off the bottom 12 inches, make the bottom of the cabinet 2 inches short with a back ledge that makes sure things don't fall off the shelf.

Hi Richard. This is truly stunning! Thanks for sharing. Ken.

Nice Work.

Does that Hallway Linen have doors because it is hard to see any seam between the end panel and the door panel.

Dan - yes three doors. I'm not sure why the margins aren't visible.

Wow really nice craft. Are those chunky panels mitered and returned back against blocking? Love what you did with shadow lines.

Stunning design and craftsmanship. Well done. Interesting to see the extent gone to hide the bamboo end grain which I think is nice personally but can see how in this design might take away from the simple elegance of it all. Just made a free standing hall cabinet with same material.

James - I never thought of those end panels as chunky (lol), but you are right that for the most part they are returned back against blocking. Sometimes at small drawer banks I will overlay the box and inset the drawer front (can pick up extra 3/4" in size of drawer).

Thanks for clarifying. Here in my town folks use that term "chunky" because of Ikea, and often the other option is plain Euro style 3/4" ;)

Wow - this looks nice and clean! Great work! I completed some work like this a year back and I like yours better! What is the bamboo finished with? Is this the solid bamboo or veneered?

Posted By: Russ     [03/15/2013]
Great work - congrats. I think this is veneer. What type of adhesive did you use and do you have lessons learned that you can share on working with this type of veneer?

Posted By: R1chard Goodman     [03/19/2013]
Antonia and Russ - no veneer here. Solid bamboo (3/4 " - 3 ply) finished with polyurethane.

Beautiful work Richard! I own a shop in South Beach Miami and keep getting clients that request bamboo. I was wondering if you would be willing to share your experience/pricing methods on this type of work, so that those of us new to this material don't under-bid a project. Is there any great difficulty in the finishing process or fabrication that's different from our standard veneer products?
