Woody Kitchen Remodel


Recommended Posts

Since maybe mid December I've been working on a neighbor's kitchen.  He made some French fries and took them next door for dinner.  But instead of turning the heat off, he turned it on high.  Yes, his kitchen caught fire.  He was lucky he came back before the house was gone.

It's been like a full time job but I'm finally beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel.

On the far left wall is tigerwood.  Zebrawood is over the cooktop.  Still have to make the drawer fronts for under the cooktop.

Very nice! Too bad that it's almost impossible to get decent Maple "butcher block" counter top these days. Much like hardwood flooring, it's all made up of shorts. Beats Formica, or Corian, but I long for the days of 10' runs of uninterrupted clear maple counter top. Last hardwood counter top I did was Cherry, and I had to glue it up myself..... Used to be the second most used wood for counter tops.... Sigh... Actually, I lie. The last one I did was Mahogany, and it was one piece solid slabs 6/4 with a glued on lip of 4/4. That was a beautiful counter top.... Real "Honduras" Mahogany, although it really came from Costa rica.

The perimeter framing is for an elevated dining counter I presume.

I boarded maple trees 10-15 years ago. Lightning strikes that had to come down.  I wasn't smart enough to specify 2" true but had a shit load of 1' true rough sawn 8' to 10' stickered in a barn.  I still have a few boards but most is casement, baseboards and window trim for a friends daughters home.

Yeah, but even with the shorts and shitwood, they're still really workable countertops. I've gone to only doing the shitwood countertops in my rentals. They look good, they're not expensive, they wear well, and when the tenants inevitably burn the top with hot pan, the burns sands right out.

Wood for the win.

 

Jules, your work is outstanding, gorgeous.

I have posted the pic here before, but there were no short pieces in the bar height dining table we made from a prep cook table, from a 1950's summer resort. Long strips of bullseye, tiger, and straight maple, mixed together.  You can't get wood like that anymore....

Beautiful, Jules. Now get them to replace the floor with something that does it justice. 

Pouring a dark red.....Burgundy urethane about 1/2 thick on that "quarry tile", might not look bad. Give it some bounce, and foot appeal too.....

Just about anything but more brown and/or a 2' square pattern that's out of scale with the space would be an upgrade.

The top he has for the other side of the kitchen has those 10' runs.  And it was finished when it arrived.  All from Global but the shorts tops were made by Boos.

The job is about 95% complete.  Still have to make up some downlights over the bar.

This started out as an attempt to hide the seam between the two slab halves and grew from there.  The bubbles are mother of pearl and the fish's eye is abalone.

You mean over the oven between the wall cabinets?  If so, I made up a couple of bloodwood shelves with a curved front.  They are ready to install but my neighbor is working on getting his house ready for an after party party for our birthday boy neighbor who turned 80 today.

This is Fish Camp.  Rust, rot, grease, and anything else that looks like shit to most, is what Rick (my neighbor) wants.  After I finished the walnut bar top he asked me if it was ready for a hammer.

Sounds like my filthy rich chiropractor-2-the-Stars. His t & g 80 year old flooring came from two box cars he bought up in BFE Washington, his 9 foot tall double sliding/pocket 5 lite doors came out of an old office building in Ohio, the custom kitchen cabinets were made from recycled African Mahogany that was once some big wheeler-dealer dude's huge personal library somewhere....and the gorgeous stained glass windows came from a century old greenhouse. He painted the walls mustard yellow and the cieling tomatoe soup red. The only new thing in that kitchen was the white & grey marble counter tops.....purposedly left unsealed. 

When Chris finally had his open house party (about 150 of us showed up), he made a point to tell every guest to treat the kitchen like you were 5 years old ......and your parents had run off and abandoned you. I came bsck the next afternoon and that kitchen looked it had been there since the Civil War......

Happy to lend you a few. Not uncommon around here to see them when I'm hiking. Usually sitting off the trail quietly watching....tail twitching.......never been bothered or charged or stalked (well probably stalked but I don't know it).......but its always a sight when you spot one sitting and watching you.

The patrons certainly do.  The restaurant is said to be the most popular waterfront restaurant in Michigan.  I was there over 30 years ago, on one of our Chicago to Mac trips, but Rick didn't own it then and my failing memory doesn't remember much other than one boat owner in the harbor telling me the approaching storm could wash right over the breakwater so I'd better tie down the boat really well before I go to sleep.

As a confirmed sardine and mackerel lover, I would hit this without hesitation.

Nothing better than sardines on Carr's crackers with a dash of Louisiana sauce. The perfect tea time snack.

They both rock if you ask me. 'Chovies on artichoke/garlic/Jack cheese/fresh 'shrooms/red pepper flakes Brushettas on sliced French bread, on pizza, in spinach salads (with hard boiled eggs and hot vinagrette dressing of course) and in home made Miso soup with a dash of high quality spicey horse radish stirred in. 

 

Sardines? 'Pends on what you bought. If thery're still whole, dried & salted.....well there's your Mother Nature's version of Ichthyologists pototoe chips....right out the f'ng bag. If you bought them in a big can floating around in a bunch of tomatoe paste? Drain the can and then dip them in Wasabi. If they're whole, uncleaned and fresh? Just gut the little fukers, dip them in egg juice, sprinkle some seasoned flour on them, brush on more egg juice, sprinkle Panko, crushed Corn Flakes, crushed Ritz crackers or even crushed garlic & olive flavored Triscuits....and teach yourself  how to deep fry shit. When they're done sprinkle some real grated Parmesan on top.....and go at. Just get a  few dish towels ready....'cuz you're probably gonna have at least one big tongue-gasm.....

The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down of the great drink they call the Chubby Mary.

Well, 'great' if you want a smoked fish in your cocktail. Meet the most Michigan drink ever.

The Chubby Mary is a twist on the traditional Bloody Mary served at The Cove in Leland's Fishtown neighborhood one of the small fishing hamlets in the Leelanau Peninsula. The recipe is pretty close to a traditional spicy Bloody Mary with hot sauce and horseradish. It's that garnish that sets it apart. Olives, pickle spear and a whole smoked chub, no doubt caught nearby in Lake Michigan.

I took the scrap pieces from the walnut bar top and tried to make a very rustic stool.  Carving the seat top:

Next was dealing with the smoke stained white walls and doors in the adjacent hallway

I found some fish campy items for the hallway entry
Halls_103.jpg.4f45d431e8455d2a0ebdcec4f3fccb45.jpg

The ceiling is the reverse side of wood planking.  I replaced the fixture, removed the white bubbled paint on the doors with a heat gun, and made up some wood trim for the doors with tigerwood.

On to the guest bath.  It used to be peeling wallpaper covering yellow paint.  The soffit had that old Florida lighting - fluorescent lights over translucent plastic sheeting.  Gutted the soffit.  Installed pecky Bolivian walnut veneer I resawed.  Found some cheap lights and spray painted them with 3 different colors.   Did the same on the ceiling as in the hallway.  The vanity will probably be replaced.

Thanks for the kind words.

This has been fun.  I'm doing stuff I've never done before and Rick has caused my mind to go places it has never gone before.  For decades it's been straight, square, level, plum, flat... and boring.  Now I'm spending more time in the creative world than the version of perfection created by man.  And Rick seems to love it.

Some more

For the shelves, I took the 16" wide bloodwood board, cut out a curved front and installed adjustable shelf pins.  And a close up of the Sloppy Joe lithograph.
RP_002c.thumb.jpg.0a9f3ac16ebbbca51be3be163236df10.jpg

Another fish camp find.  No doubt this fighting belt will create some conversation.  In the background is a portion of what I was told is a beach pole, for casting off the beach.  The pole is over 8 feet long.  It didn't have a reel when we got it but I was able to find an old one that fit perfectly.  The brackets are made out of tigerwood scraps.
RP_003c.thumb.jpg.bfd9c803a5da62ca1aaae7f5c0c23fc2.jpg

Gotta have some fish lure ads, and smoke stains at the top of the door frame in memory of the Great Fire.  Rick had that basket laying around.  I hung it because it reminded me of a fishing basket.  Under the copper cups are two scrap pieces of tigerwood.  I'm going to mount them to the wall on the right as shelves.  The copper cups will go on one and something else on the other.  The ladder is my 'lektrishuns ladder, customized to cut conduit and hold tools.  I've had that thing for close to 35 years.

Yeah.  Some of the money I made on the project went to replacing a 25 year old Delta contractors saw.  It really struggled with the South American woods more commonly found around here.  The increase from 1-3/4HP to 4HP was instantly obvious.

There is no doubt in my mind, that the bathroom, especially the vanity, sink, and toilet need to be replaced.

I'm thinking Saltillo tile for the floor, a simple slat fronted vanity, with hidden hinges, and touch latch doors. The sink/toilet paper holder can be hammered copper with a humorous fish faucet on the sink, and tail fin water valves. The toilet takes a little more thought..... Those are hard to custom make. My B-i-L did a few many years ago in stoneware, but they weren't as successful as he'd hoped.

There is no doubt in my mind, that the bathroom, especially the vanity, sink, and toilet need to be replaced.

I like it! I'm on the road right now but when I get back I'll see what's doable.  Thanks!
