I don't think I would use ultra modern hardware with such a rustic/primitive finish.
You have to do what the cliant wants.
I like the hardware, and like Scott says, the customer is the boss, so you do what they want.
I think it is nice mixing the contemporary with the traditional. Makes things interesting.
Nice work Scott.
Just out of curiosity, what did you charge for that job?
This job was done two years ago. I think design,build and install was 28K
You did a nice job, and as it was said the customer is the boss. I don't like the hardware or the finish, but that's what makes the world go around. Must have been fun scribing that right side return panel to the stone huh.
How did you build your doors ? mitered or cope & stick.
cope and stick
I am getting ready to build some replacement doors, painted with flat panel similar to yours, did you glue the panel for added strength ? I like the feet on the cabinets, nice detail.
No,The panel must be able to move with any moisture and temp changes . The panel or even the stile may crack.
My panels will be 1/4" birch ply, so I am not concerned with movement, yours must be solid wood panels. There is just not a lot of strength in a cope joint without a tenon, especially with larger doors.
Rob, the birch plywood will not move as much as the wood around it. The stress being on the wood around it. If I were you, I would only glue those panels if I were already planning to re-build them (because that is a sure-fire way to get to that point).
Even when I use 1/4" plywood panels I don't glue them in. I have not had any joint failures. I have made 100's of doors. Any time a door is over 48" high it should have a rail to devide the panels in two.
Nice work. What hinge brand and model number did you use? Can you explain the glaze process you used?
