A Wine Cabinet Built by MMFWW

Custom Built Wine Cabinet

Recently completed installation of a simple wine storage cabinet, custom made to fit into an existing alcove in the wall. Client did not want a traditional latticework wine rack so we designed some shelves that were more to her liking and added a few doors and a drawer to maximize storage. The look on her face when we delivered the cabinet and completed the install was priceless, hope you like it too :-)

Another Custom Closet completed. Project was to increase the square footage of the garage and extend it out to allow a walk-in closet to be framed into the rear portion of the garage, next to the master bedroom. This walk-in allowed us to maximize the clients closet space to 8 times the space that she had previously. It is made of pre-finished maple and incorporates 12 Large Dovetailed Drawers on full extension Blum Tandum soft close drawer slides, Shoe shelves, Chrome rods and 16 Maple robe pegs on the back wall.

Derek G., contractor

The Pescadero project has been a lot of fun to be a part of. The owner of the property has been an interior designer and true artist for many years. We have worked with her on several projects over the years and as they approach retirement, they asked us to help them to make their own home unique. Here are a few pictures during construction to show the progress of the project.

Drywall goes up next week and we anticipate cabinet installation will be starting Mid-December. The cabinets on this project are a little different in each room. The Dresser in the Master Bedroom Has 18 drawers and solid cherry plank style doors with Horizontal Grain, The Master Vanity is constructed of Solid Alder with posted legs open section in the center under the drawers with a slatted bottom for rolled up towels etc…The Vanity’s edges will be roughed up and a grey-wash finish will be applied to make it resemble the color of driftwood.

Teak Vanity and Dresser

Teak Dresser and Vanity

As our Teak cabinetry comes back from the finisher we are all beginning to fall in love with this material. It looks amazing and is extremely durable. On this San Francisco Teak project, the client wanted a handmade Walnut Pull routed in to the door, so we custom made these pulls routed them in between the v grooves on the doors and added a little stain to the pulls to really make them pop.

Honesty, integrity, truth and fairness. These are values. Values strongly influence the ways we interact with others and how we conduct business. Values are extremely important to understand, and to uphold. Values, as they relate to the construction industry, are constantly being challenged–and as these challenges often go unmet, someone loses–often in the most unexpected manner.

Please contact me if this topic resonates– I’m on a crusade to improve it.
