Bevels: Elegance and Light

Bevels ©Phoenix 2006, La Grange, IL

The client had just moved to a wonderful condominium in downtown La Grange. She spent a lot of her work time in travel, and she needed an elegant but easily kept kitchen. Her cabinets on move-in-day were solid oak front panels. The wood panel in each cabinet door was routed and removed. The center wood panel was replaced with a shining cluster of beveled panes set against the rich texture of clear glue-chip glass.

The completed panels were photographed in the studio. Note the crispness of the center bevels against the patterned texture of the glue chip background.

Both cabinet doors are photographed in the studio before installation.
