The title says it all – if you need a shelf cut to length, or an extra wood piece for something, or you’re missing a hinge or hardware item – drop by. Often small fixes can be done right away, at least they’ll be looked at and then done very soon. Don’t like disappointment? Then […]
More about the Jazzland wall to come, including the installation time-lapse, and a visit from friend Dean, when we get a chance. http://www.deanpalmer.ca Here’s the preview.
The feint, in cardboard. The finished radiator surround, in maple, walnut, curly cherry and bad light. The room which was waiting for the added rad surround. Cabinetwork in maple, with walnut doors, curly cherry display drawers – tops in black granite and copper details all over.
Luckily and thankfully, a new wall is underway. And hopefully it’ll be tracked here, with a new pic taken at 2 o’clock most days. Showing the progress of a large project, and allowing my most-fantabulous clients (yes, that’s seriously said) to keep an eye on my work days. The construction for this starts with the […]
From the afor-mentioned log. Tables are finished in Livos oils. Thanks to Dylon Smith for steel work, and Dean Palmer for photos.
Coming up shortly: a pair of boardroom tables, for a university biology dept, in Metasequoia of all things. Soft, yielding, and gorgeous colour.

Things were strangely slow for a bit, now all’s well, and thoughts of work can keep me awake, instead of thoughts of no work. Here’s a recent piece, for a friend who does primo graphic work – the wood tray pulls out and then tilts down to accept a drawing tablet or laptop – by […]
This banquette is shown on account of the semi-exploded view, showing the number of parts often found in a simple looking piece. In this case, the banquette has a live-sawn Walnut top, wormy Maple for the carcass, and 2 drawers within, running length-wise, for table linens, etc.
Cheap Trash, an open unit which does the same job as Trashy® with less bells and whistles, is also constructed of Arreis, melamine coated – it comes with 3 bins, side or back towel bar, locking soft casters, 90 lb. Accuride slides on the left or right hand sliding top […]
This is a not-so-small project for storing and displaying a coin collection. 1st and second photos: The prior starting point was to restore and rebuild a set of printer’s typeface storage cabinets, incorporating a U-shaped wall to wall desk with live-sawn White Oak tops. Placeholders for coins-yet-to-come, 1200 pieces in Baltic Birch, in 4 […]
