I harvested this standing-dead english walnut from my buddy’s front yard, and was happy to get it back from the mill today. Only 2 1/2 years of air drying and then a month in the dehumidifier kiln and these babbies will be ready to use!
I spent last week installing this kitchen in San Diego, CA. This client was a pleasure to work with and gave me lots of creative freedom in the design. The color palette we chose: rustic white oak, ebonized oak, walnut, dark steel hardware, and etched glass. Here are some shots from the installation. (We are still waiting for the black granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances)
