A project for my house

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

There are times when woodworking gets, for lack of better words, boring.  Don’t get me wrong I love woodworking, that is why I chose to do this for a living.  Sometimes I need to step away from all of the projects with time frames and budgets and just build something.  I just completed a small project for my kitchen that filled this criteria.  We have had a wire wine rack on top of our fridge that was impossible to clean and my wife would have to get a chair anytime she wanted a bottle.  I decided to use the side of one of our wall cabinets and attach the wine rack to that.  I did some research to find the average size of a wine bottle and searched out a router bit with a radius slightly bigger.  I used this bit to cut coves into platforms that would be attached to the side of the cabinet.  Fearing that the wine bottles would need more support I added a back against the wall to help support the weight.  I look forward to filling this project up and then emptying it out.

 

 

Design and Commishions

I had a customer reach out to me at the end of last year wanting a bath fitter desk makeover.  After 20 years of cold Formica and cubical walls he decided he wanted a wood skin to put on top of his existing desk.  With this he wanted a shelf attached to the back of the desk, with these few instructions I started my designs.  Every time I go through this process I still fear the customer will not like my design.  As the drawing progresses I question the details and how they meet the customers tastes.  I keep telling myself to just be true to who I am and true to my designs and if this customer does not like it I will wait for the next.

Fortunately this customer liked my design and the desk is currently under construction
