Please, don't take ANY offense whatsoever, but to me that looks like a dimly lit bar with no windows (yes Dan, I can adjust the brightness and contrast on my monitor :) ). It is hard for me to see the details except on the chair. Like I said, I do like the look of the dimly lit rooms, they are very ...

I hear you. I normally do retouch my images, I left them alone here to show the native image. For this customer, I did close ups of the details and had a full view that was retouched and looked better. I try to use alot of light because here in the desert it is always sunny and the houses, to the de...

Cherry Wine/Media cabinet

Peter, here is the layout I was talking about. I have can lights in each of the openings and about 9 dome lights up and down the front of the main unit and about 12 more dome lights around the perimeter of the room. If I turn the lights down you cannot make out the sunburst above the two pieces or t...

I agree about the lighting sometimes being a pain to get right. I just finished a layout and I had to put many many lights at different elevations to get it right, and I am still not really happy. For me anyway, once I get enough light on the wood, there are shadows everywhere and everything else ge...

Yes, no, maybe, sort of I guess. What I was trying to figure out is the tie in with design sharing. But wait, don't answer that yet. I was taking a myopic view of this and it is apparent from not only the responses I received but the whole discussion that this is more than one subject. Rather than t...

I think the problem here as there are several topics being discussed and I think that is causing my misunderstanding. I, like everyone else, use other people's designs from books, magazines, catalogs, tv, whatever for ideas and inspiration. I am in no way saying that anyone shouldn't or wouldn't. No...

Maybe I am missing something here but just what designs are we talking about? I don't see the connection between a library of cabinets and a room design. Taking a proven manufacturable set of cabinet designs and building them is one thing but designing a kitchen with them is quite another. You all k...

Oh I hate to bring back this memory... This is what I had to sell to start my business a few years ago. I needed the money and the garage. I still have the '96 but the '72 had to go. 67K original miles and all original numbers matching except paint and top. I had to post after seeing the other Cheve...

Jim, I grew up in Seattle and we used to go see Queensryche at the Bellevue Skate King and other odd places before they hit it big. Fast forward a few years and I worked with a guy who grew up with Eddie Jackson and we were out partying one night and actually ran into him. Fast forward a few more ye...

Thanks. I have several guitar and guitar/music related projects that I have either started or planned and they just never seem to get any time (translated, there are no dollar signs attached). That is what I created the Cool Stuff section for and rather than have it sit empty... Just in case you are...

A non-cabinet cabinet

What the heck, as long as I am at it I thought I would post another out of the ordinary project I did with eCabs. The design comes from portfolio I saw from the James Krenov school and I wanted to make something similar. This is a solid mahogany cabinet with spalted hackberry panels in the doors and...

Stairwell Entertainment Center

Nobody asked but I figured I would post this since I mentioned it in another post. I have never posted any pics here before so bear with me if I screw it up. This was an interesting project for eCabs. I was given some pictures and a dimensioned drawing of the stairwell opening done by someone else a...
