Yesterday we showed you the silver (like wow) salvaged doors from an apartment we toured. Today we would like to show you one more memorable thing from our quick walk-through (nothing refurbished we promise). These plywood cabinet panels were put through a CNC Machine/process of complex router-ing. Click through the jump for a close up and more on CNC Machines.

Since we were trying to be rather sneaky with the camera, our closeup wasn't taken with flash... or a steady hand for that matter. So our apologies for the photo quality.
The landlord said that he used a CNC Machine, (which you can read more about here) to replicate the shadow that a tree down the block, makes on the side of the house next to it. The upper and lower cabinets were also done in the same fashion as this island. And although we regret not being able to snag a picture of the kitchen as a whole, trust when we say it was neat, although it made a small kitchen feel cluttered.... even when there wasn't anything in it.
Now that we look at the close up, it almost feels like a mystical little world full of oceans and islands where people might wear funny hats and speak in far off languages.
