Armstrong Jordan Painted kitchen

Postby senior » Fri Nov 22, 2013 7:03 pm

Hi,
Another kitchen just about done.

Central London, complete nightmare to park and get to.

It's not been hand painted yet, should be painted in early December. We always prime the kitchens up and then get one base coat on of the right colour just to help the painter.

45mm wide board oak worktops, made up by us, we have bought them occasionally in the past but they seem to be crazy prices to be honest.

White sockets at present, I think the client is changing them to chrome.

Quadrant posts and turned coving

Wonderful bob (again)

Your painter must have the patience of a saint to paint it all in situ

I worked on a kitchen years ago that was made by Smallbone. Their painter spent a whole day painting one coat on a door and then used a feather to "enhance" the effects....... TBH it was a decent kitchen but they really did "sell" a lifestyle....

More quality work Bob.........The lighting doesn't do it justice, is it in a cellar?. Thought cellars in London were all " play dungeons"

Very nice. Not sure I'd go for a black island unit though; I guess its the customer's idea?

Sometimes they go out white, the painter is self employed and charges the client direct, we are really just doing them a favour to keep the costs down, think she normally does 2 coats on top of our work.

I hate threads that everyone says "great job"

but that's about it for this one, because it is another "great job" :)

Keep up the good work !

MFC, but the customer can have any carcase material they want, birch ply lined with Black rhino ball bag leather is a bit difficult to come by but if thats what the customer wants and can afford then we will give it a go. :lol: :lol:

Cheers, I've heard of that being done before so its even more skilled having a different machine match the straight run. So I guess you take a template of the straight bit, then keep offering it up to the lathe till its near enough?
