How did I miss this?? Did it come through the Discussions side yet? (I was out of town from the 20th to the 26th). This is absolutely beautiful.

sjerin - yes, I did post it under the discussions side as "My done modern kitchen", but it is gone now (too old). There were quite a lot of nice comment. I then reposted it here for the Finished Kitchen Blog. Still don't know if it's there or not.

Anyway, thanks for the kind words. Having used it for a few months, it works well. My only two regrets are the sink (minor, but food particles don't smoothly go down the drain and it takes a while to wash everything down) and the honed absolute black granite (a bit hard to keep looking nice (but microfiber towels work great) and you have to keep aluminum away from it (puts marks on it)).

it's a showstopper. I have two questions:
what kind of hood is that? and what is above your cabinets(between the top and the ceiling)?. we are deciding between no molding at all, or a very thin strip.
thanks so much
