2012 was a fairly busy year for me and until recently, I had not been able to get photos of completed projects to update my site.
So in addition to the beds and kitchen items, here are some photos of some of the other projects finished in the last year or so …
Pine bookcase (shop pix):
Firewood Box – solid pine:
Some time ago I was asked to make 2 beds (a king & a queen). This post shows the queen size bed, which is somewhat unique in that it has 6 drawers built into the bed frame … ideal for a room of limited size.
Made of solid poplar with raised panels and mortise/tenon joinery, it is an assembly of 4 main components bolted together and can be easily disassembled in the event of a move.
Below, another shop view of the frame with a drawer extended.
… and here, a shop perspective of the bed with the headboard.
Below is the reference photo I was given to work from.
I recently contracted with a client who needed a fireplace mantle and built in cabinetry for their living room.
The pic below shows the image before installation …
Here below, is a pic of the assembly in my shop.
The cabinetry is made of solid birch, with frame and panel construction using mortise & tenon joinery.
The finished result is shown below … including the multi layered solid birch mantle. The cabinet door opens to permit storage of firewood.
My dear wife has been after me for some time, to make items for the kitchen. So after finishing a large King Bed (not posted here yet) project using cherry and maple, I had a fair amount of odd sized wood left over.
Using pictures she found on the web for ideas, I made these items below.
Solid Cherry Tray
Solid Cherry & Maple Bread boxes
The bread boxes shown are assembled using dove tail joints. They can also be made using tongue & groove joinery.
Cherry Cutting Board 14" X 10" X 1 1/4"
These items are not immersible and should be cleaned with a damp cloth. All items shown here have been hand rubbed with several coats of non toxic mineral oil.
I can also make these to your preferred sizes and choice of wood.
- Solid Cherry Cutting Boards
Prices vary depending on size, type of wood and joinery techniques used.
My very good client asked me to make a wall unit to match the bookcase I made for her last year. I designed it to meet the specific dimensions and specifications we determined after a site visit to her home.
Here is the finished result …
Solid Poplar Wall Unit
It is a 2 piece unit made of solid poplar. Very sturdily constructed using mortise & tenon joinery with floating raised panels for all sides and back. Glass panel doors for the top cabinet and raised panel doors for the bottom.
