Out With The Old, In With The New... Dave Moore, Cabinet Maker Entering the David H Moore Cabinetry workshop in Saanich, off Keating Cross-Road, I was immersed in the aroma of freshly cut wood. The space was filled with neatly stacked boards, partly finished cabinets, planers, table saws, routers, and other wood-working tools. A pile of sawdust and wood shavings lay under the planer where Moore was working. "I've been handling wood since I was a kid," he said. "My Dad taught woodwork at Camosun College and had a workshop at home where he let me build things." Moore also spent 17 years apprenticing under one of Victoria's premier cabinet makers. Little wonder that he has built a reputation for quality and craftsmanship and is booked solid for the next half year. Together with Impett and Richards, Moore designed the cabinets in their home, which he calls a modern take on traditional cabinetry. His biggest challenge was working with the nine-foot ceilings. "We had to be careful with the design so that the kitchen looks proportional, not stretched out," he said. "It also made for a tricky installation." There's also a green side to Moore, who strives to operate ecologically. "Almost nothing goes to landfill," he said. "The sawdust goes to a farmer for chicken bedding and the offcuts become kindling or are re-made into plywood."

And A Happy New Kitchen...
