I made this custom cabinet entirely from recycled material, 1/2 inch veneer or plywood, the counter top is recycled Ceasarstone, and the Formica rosewood laminate is from 1969 stock from my workshop.
Even the drawer pulls are manufactured by Hahn Brass Company, New Hamburg, Ontario, Canada in 1946. They were recovered from old Simon's gas station on Dundas Street West In Toronto.
The Ceasarstone counter top is a man made quartz product that is easy to cut with a portable wet saw and some patience. I did not film the cutting of the stone but by taking numerous shallow passes I was able to get a very clean and precise cut.
For easy cleaning, the cabinet drawers are all lined in white gloss Formica. The cabinet is of minimalist construction inspired by modern Danish furniture, Charles and Ray Eames and others, etc. and employing simple clean lines popular in mid-century design.
