This spectacular kitchen is all about the details and the natural beauty of wood . With the egg and dart motif carried throughout the design all the way to the monogrammed cabinet knobs, this kitchen is truly a work of art.
The primary wood used in the kitchen is Cherry. The center panel on all the doors and drawers is Curly Cherry which adds a visual depth to the individual door.
This is just one of many examples of Custom Kitchens done by Master Craftsman Scott Severns.
