The owners of this home came to CDC with a magazine photo of what appeared to be random oak boards used in wall paneling, an appearance they wanted to adapt for all their cabinetry and interior doors. The goal was to use the highest possible grade of white oak to create an appearance of glued up solid wood without the cupping and warping problems associated with large solid wood surfaces. Fully understanding these challenges led CDC to create a unique method of construction for this job. White Oak was resawn, edge-glued, and applied through many stages of veneer lamination to ensure material stability. This project challenges almost every principle of cabinetry, from the zero overhang stainless steel countertop in the kitchen, to the 5 massive closet doors with concealed hinges in the master bathroom. This home in Point Clear, Alabama is unprecedented in design complexity and also raw material creation.
