    I got the 760cfm unit. A tad loud on high. But it clears the smoke fast! On the lower setting it does great. This can be ducted. Or non-ducted using carbon filters. The lights are LED that swivel. Install use straight forward.

    I always built them myself, so I could build them at any height, but I could build them at 42", and get my Son to get things out---He's a little over 6' 4". LOL
    There's nothing wrong with 42" wall cabinets, and I only asked Steve, because only about 10 of the more than 100 Kitchen I built ordered 42" Wall Cabinets.

    Steves Kitchen looks Great !!

    Another reason why I went with 42" walls was because my kitchen isn't very big. Plus, I lost cabinets when I removed the one wall. I bought a nice three steep ladder to reach the tops safely.

    I made a lot of kitchens, when I had my cabinetmaking business, and I can honestly say your color scheme makes those tall wall cabinets look better than any others I've seen. It seems to have that "Touch of class" that many don't have.

    Thanks Bear. The wife and I took months to decide exactly how we wanted this kitchen to look. We both knew that we just didn't want natural wood finish this time around. And we wanted something unique. But not unique to the point the house wouldn't be salable.

    Do you know what species of wood was used in the cabinet construction.
    The ones I made (Paint Grade), I made with Poplar. It is the straightest, knot-free Hardwood in the NorthEast Market.
    It's also a pleasure to work with.

    It is actually called a Soft Hardwood, by cabinetmakers.
    It is by rule considered a Hardwood, because it is a Deciduous Tree (Sheds it's leaves).

    We used it for cabinets that got painted, and it was also good for cabinets that got laminated, because unlike Pine, the router bearing didn't tear up the edges of the Poplar framing.

    One of the things I'm hoping to do one day is to have a nice wood shop. I enjoy working with wood. Just don't have the space.

    I had my complete cabinet shop in my last house. It had a 2900 sq ft basement, with an extra block in height. It worked great.
    If I can help in any way with questions or suggestions, just let me know.

    Now I think I hijacked your Beautiful Kitchen thread enough.

    If I ever get the chance to build a shop I'll pick your grey matter for info. And you didn't hijack my thread.
