Beautiful Kitchen from Reclaimed Materials

George Ramos creates beautiful kitchens and built-ins from reclaimed wood (whenever possible). So when it came time for this cabinet maker to make his own kitchen, it's only natural that it would be a standout project: cabinets from reclaimed Douglas fir and socially conscious sourced mahogany counters. The results are stunning.

George's personal kitchen is made from non-urea formaldehyde added plywood and 100% reclaimed Douglas fir doors, drawer fronts and face-frames. The counter tops are African mahogany, and while they're not reclaimed, they are from source where the local economy benefits from the sale of the lumber. Much of the glass in the cabinet doors are also reclaimed.

George's typical projects are craftsman kitchens. He follows the cues of the specific home for which he's building and enjoys designing the cabinets to appear as though they were always there. With his background in art and design, his goal is to become the resource for redesigning an installing built-in furniture that fit the gorgeous period homes of Portland, OR where he calls home.
