On the stool side of the island, you'll see some of the cooktop appliance extending beyond the burners. This is for a downdraft vent. Here is an example of one, although not the one pictured: http://www.ajmadison.com/cgi-bin/ajmadison/DD01.html

Most cabinets in our designs have be custom fabricated. Any cabinet maker should be able to make a panel such as this one, customized for your space.

Very nice kitchen! I too have been trying to determine the wood used for the cabinets. In a similar project on Houzz (LOK FRENCH), the designer indicated that the wood was vg-fir, however the close up photo in this project looks more like Maple or something - but I am really not certain.

I also would be interested in knowing the wood species.

Anyway, nice work!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Simple cabinetry. Cabinetry in an Asian-style kitchen has clean lines and is free of ornamentation. Some cabinets have a Shaker-like quality, while others are frameless. Keep hardware crisp and minimal to match.
