I think the color of that is awesome, but as for the inlay, it will be something like this..
if you look closely tou will see that they tacked it on with some sort of decorative nail too.

ok then. You are doing an overlay rather than an inlay. Inlays are usually set into another wood. Like the inlays you see on decorative tables. By the sounds of it you will be overlaying your selected material,lets say it is the decorative copper onto a layer of plywood to give it the look you want. In the picture you put up the drawers and doors are a raised panel with copper or ? overtop of it. I am sure it will look good what ever you choose to use. There are a lot of different kinds out there. A friend did a large hutch and used old style pie pantry stamps. They have holes in them to allow the pies to cool with out worry of mice and such(it's an old school thing) not suggesting you have mice....lol Lots of options to choose from. I am looking forward to seeing your finished product I am sure it will be great.

I did my corner seam like the picture you showed. At first I was going to do a 45degree cut, but it would have been a nightmare.

My buddy in Denmark has a HUGE kitchen with no upper cabinets at all and a TON of butcherblock tops and he did all his seams like that which is what sold me.

Kitchen remodel


After some LENGTHY thought on how in the world I was gonna fit an island into my teeny tiny kitchen, i finally abandoned the idea for a new one. Now i will have to use my slabs of wood for other things. I'm thinking one for an outdoor table and one for the dining room table. sad though i really wanted to make an island out of them. my electric should be done tomorrow and then i can get the cabinets built and ready for the countertops.
Heres the new kitchen layout.

Leiona, what about using some of that wood for your pass through. If you have some live edge that would look great having live edge on both sides, just a thought. You could also use that same kind of wood for your shelving beside your stove. Anyways it all looks great and I am looking forward to seeing more pics as you progress. Not to sound sexist, but I think it is great to see a woman taking on a job like this.

Thank you very much Fixrite, I couldn't agree with you more. I think all women, and men, should take on all the challenges they can in life. People should not let gender based prejudices deter them from fufilling their dreams. My desire has always been to build the house of my dreams, and do the work myself. I may not be very good yet but I love building things. Doing this kitchen is just practice, and everyones helpful advice will just get me there that much faster.

BTW after sitting in my kitchen for hours last night thinking, i came up with the best uses for my slabs and believe me, i dont regret for one second buying them. i love them. the one that was going to be my island will now be my dining room table and the really pretty one will be an outside table for my deck, where the sun will make its pattern more visible. and I will certainly use a varnish with UV blockers no worries!

one more day and my electricals done...got the cuts measured for the cabinets, and my countertops are in!! Lets get this kitchen remodel thing back on a roll, right?! I studied snavs thread and i think the cabinets are gonna be a breeze, and thank goodness its only one...and shelves to boot, no door no drawer

I should have known when the handyman told me he would move a few plugs around for me it would turn into an entire kitchen rewire!! but it needed it i guess, and he's charging me next to nothing thank goodness.

Kitchen remodel


ok! kitchen electrical is done, first coat of plaster for all the wall repairs i had to do because of it arrrrrgh...and i got the right cabinet built and ready to face, pony wall in for the counter to rest on, and a new floor under the sink cabinet...which is still leaking to my dismay. i thought we fixed that months ago.
tomorrow is facing the right cabinet, finishing the left side cabinet, and beadboard on the pony wall and lining the inside of the left side cabinet..then i will sand it all and get some paint on. I'm thinking a dark brown or black enamel undercoat with a coat of white on top..then i will scuff the white so some of the brown shows through. i still have to make two cabinet doors but im not sure if i want shaker style or barn door style so i'm waiting to do that.

Hey guys, i was wondering if anyone has ever plastered over border instead of ripping it down..? I think a light coat of plaster over it would be easier and nicer looking than taking it down, especially since someone has painted right up to the edge which means that when the border comes down there will be a paint lip which will have to be sanded anyway. the border is literally BONDED to the wall!

BTW my countertops came..they are beautiful. i'm gonna stain them dark.

If you are intending to use your countertops for food contact, ensure the stain is safe and won't transfer to your food if you cut or prep it on the countertops. Don't want to hear of you getting sick.
