Hope you folks don't mind some amateur work.

Vermont log cabin, counter top fashioned from 12'x30"x2 1/2" thick pine, hand planed. Live edge on front. Stock cabinets.

gotta love that counter- is there any story behind that chunk of pine?

Terry--that's my idea of a nice kitchen!

I like the sink detail too.

The lighting and photography might be amature, but not the design or the workmanship.
Good job!

Terry,
Nice work. I took the liberty to brighten your pictures.

Terry: From one amateur kitchen builder to another, great job. It is just right for you cabin. Also love the logs, they make the 8" d-logs that are used around here in n.c. look like toothpicks.

Thanks to everyone for all the encouragement. My apologies for the dark photos - need a better flash for my camera. Here is one more pic that is a bit brighter and shows some of my better half's Thanksgiving handy work as well!

One more - not so much kitchen, but lots of wood and what we give thanks for.

No real great story behind the chunk of pine. Log home builder directed us to a wood dealer in New Hampshire where we found a 12' section of a 30" log sliced into 2.5" slabs. The dealer did not have a planer wide enough for these pieces and encouraged me to try surfacing by hand. Was a great way to spend a summer day in New England.

I love the way you've got the logs beveled into the window trim. I scallopped one like that once with an axe by hand. But they were smaller logs. You must've used a chainsaw there.

There is no pleasure quite like taking plane shavings off a piece of timber.

Can't claim credit for that detail. All the log work was done by the Wooden House Company in Wells River, Vermont. These folks are real craftsmen. With big logs the bevel lets more light into the building. You are right - chainsaw work finished with a disk sander.
