Quartersawn oak kitchens?

I'd love to see some quartersawn oak kitchens. I am helping a friend build a new kitchen and I told him I would source some photos. A lot of the results on google don't show the full layout so I'd like to know if anyone here has examples (looking at you boxer!).

It doesn't seem to be the most popular kitchen style but his house is kind of arts and crafts style. Thanks in advance.

These are "in progress" pictures, but here are mine. We're going for a bit of a modern Mission look, so that might be exactly what you're looking for. Feel free to look around the rest of the set--you can see the before pictures, the computer-generated layout, and the progress pictures.

Here's a close up picture of a cabinet door in my old kitchen which was renovated in 2001. The kitchen itself is so outdated per GW standards, I didn't bother with a pic of the entire kitchen, just thought I'd show you the beauty of QS oak. Cabinet door, Quarter Sawn Oak, SW fruitwood stain, hardware from Van Dyke's

MIne is only partially qs oak...just top cabs.And the last doors, etc. have yet to go on. But perhaps they will help. Note that in the first pic, the hood was not QS and didn't have the tile. The right hood is in the following picture.

Keystone wood specialties has some nice white oak quartersawn doors. I think they are under mission style. These are just individual door photos but gives you some different door designs in this style to look at.

Yes mine is...but it isn't Arts and Crafts style so I was hesitant to post it again. There's a pic in the senators' link Heres a couple of close-ups of what made us fall in love with this wood.

From a distance and with a cell phone camera the graining is less obvious
