Thank you William, These were done for a customer.  I will be adding some custom crown molding to these some time this spring.  The molding will be about 12 inches in heigth and will enclose the cabinets to the ceiling.

On my photo or project page there is a "how to build arched panel doors" that you might find interesting .  There is a link on the album that will show you many more photos.  There is one also on the beaded face frame dressers that I have posted.  Thanks again for the nice comments.

I always dream of building and having a beautiful kitchen like this. Awesome job on the cabinets, learned a lot of techniques. Looking forward to more photos of your projects.

Well thank you Robert, that is quite a compliment and I appreciate your comments. To me is is what a custom kitchen should look like.

Professionally done!

I don't know of any others, who've done what you've described.

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Robert, You are correct, record keeping is a very important step in life today.  You never know what you might need to solve a problem or answer a question.  Fortunately technology has enabled us to be very percise in generating records for use at a later time. 

I also take photos as a method to teach others the steps involved in its creation.   Pictures teach and words describe making a complete history. 

 They can also show a customer where his or her dollar went and a customer can use your photos to show others or to aid in insurance and property value setting and or proof of value in case of loss.

Along with this it is always nice to have completed a project and what makes it even better is to have detailed photos of it.  It just becomed a joyful part of the craftsmanship.

Well that all makes sense, thanks.

And well done on the Smile Box "How to production" on the doors, just goes to show that record keeping is worth the effort and with the technology available today the "humble" Chippie he /She has a few hours of post workshop work. Even your reply above presents a professional reply.

Robert, there is a correction in the above content.  I wrote 24 degrees  it should be 45 degrees.

Robert in answer to your questions:  The white area under the doors is the registry vent for heat as it is a common method to install heat venting unde the cabinet and route it out from the cabinets though the toekick.  This is a temp metal vent and a wooden oak vent will be installed.  The other white area is the same thing and in the same cabinet(sink) shot from a different angle. (It is a corner cabinet set at a 24 degree angel from the other cabinets.)  The white around the dishwasher is the dish washer  body and this will be hidden by trim once the plumber has finished his installation of the dishwasher hood up.  The other area that is shown unfinished in the photos is the refrigerator surround.  This now has a fluted oak trim installed.

Your next question:  This is in a contractor's site.

Your third question:   I did the door presentation and put it together.  It is done is stages as I build the doors. I did the photgraphy and upon finish I put the photos together in a orderly fashion and used software to generate the presentation.  To make the presentation maybe about 30 minutes.  I save this presentation and later upon my completion of the work make a copy onto a DVD and give it to the owner as a record of my work.  I use software called "Smile box" that is made in Redmond, Washington and also make other presentations of my work using some software made in New Zeland called "DVD Pix Play" by Xequte.  I find this a good method of saving my work.  I keep a copy for my own record.

Kreg Foreman

I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
