Saima, engineered wood flooring, birch

Saimi engineered wood flooring, vertically lamined birch

laid in basketweave pattern, each plank is approx. 6′ long by 1′ wide

the birch is all the same color and tone and takes on different reflection by the angle of view

very nice when used as a fairly large field in some kind of pattern

pre-finished, sanding and staining not recommended as the glue between the vertical laminations does not take stain well

These cabinets are very nice.  Warm, modern look and feel, much better pricing than having local custom cabinets made of same look.  The odd thing about these is that they are in effect, inset cabinets.  However, as you can see, they do not have the usual face frame that the doors sit flush with.  Rather the doors sit flush with the exposed ends of the boxes.  These ends are 13 ply maple veneers, much like baltic birch, and quite nice.  This is very clean and simple look that has a kind of decorative quality.  It is a bit tricky to install them as they want to flush out with the adjacent wall surfaces without any filler or trim strips.  This means that the drywall finishing almost has to be done (or done again) after the cabinets are installed.

The cabinets shown above are the DIY version, sent knocked-down in flat packs.  We had a local finish carpentry outfit put them together to make sure they were structurally sound and properly fitted.  The boxes are notched and mortised to all fit together and were fairly simple to assemble.
