Heirloom Flame Cherry Shaker Style Custom Kitchen
Exquisite Hand Made Shaker Cabinets
by Delnero Custom Kitchens
Custom Built for Beverly ~ White Plains, New York
This custom built Shaker kitchen features cabinets crafted out of heirloom grade flame "or curly" cherry with exquisite attention to detail and design. This kitchen was designed by Architect, Chris Broda in Westchester County, NY. We have had the pleasure of working with Chris on many projects in New York City over the last 15 years. Her amazing eye for detail and proportion are brought to life in our Up-State New York woodworking shop.
Planks of beautifully figured flame cherry from the woods of Northern Pennsylvania were purchased and used to create this breathtaking Shaker kitchen. All the panels were bookmatched out of SOLID boards of flame cherry. The term "bookmatched' today refers to extremely thin veneers laminated onto secondary woods such as popular wood. At Delnero Custom Kitchens, we never laminate veneers. Our bookmatched panels are actually thick pieces of solid wood that are split into two pieces. The two surfaces that were next to each other are glued next to each other to create the mirrored effect. This was the method used by Master furniture builders two centuries ago, and were taught to us by our Father & Grandfather.

This kitchen featured a large island unit. The sink side of the island had a wine refrigerator. Both sides had ample storage with cupboards and large drawers. There is a small desk/writing surface at one end, and a small veggie sink at the other. The upper cabinets along the back wall had lightly frosted glass panels in the doors.
At first glance, one might think these traditional Shaker styled cabinets may not have the conveniences found in today's modern cabinetry. We are asked to incorporate all sorts of quality hardware into our cabinetry. The tall door next to the double ovens is actually a full extension, pull out pantry. We were able to fit in a small broom closet (end of cabinet, near the wall) behind the double ovens.
The lower cabinet door is attached to a hardware called "magic corner." It allows one to easily utilize the hard to reach space found in kitchen corners. You simply pull the door straight out to access a rack directly behind it. If you then swing the door to the left, it pulls out a second tray that was stowed in the corner!
We use high quality drawer slides rated to hold 150 lbs, which is handy for jobs like storing industrial appliances. Our roll outs are all dovetail constructed, as is our drawers.
