On the studio floor

A sampling of unusual projects now being created in our custom services department

June/July 2003

Walnut Ceiling Beams

Ceiling Beams

We'll have to wait for the photos of the finished project to explain this one. But you don't need to know exactly what it is to appreciate the hand-dovetailed joinery of this solid walnut component.

One of a set of two. Look for the posted photos in August(?)

Hampshire Vanity

Hampshire bath vanity

Walnut and walnut burl, with gilded accents in genuine 23.5k gold, followed by genuine silver, burnished-through just so.

So if I were stranded on a desert island, and could only build just one cabinet over and over again...

Radius crown molding

Curved Crown

Created for a small quarter round display cabinet.

Burl commode

Small Commode

Solid ash and olive ash burl.

Just readied for the finishing room, the hinging was removed before I could snap the photo (thus the radius doors sitting on the bench). Oh well, take a look at the Soss hinge mortises.

As light colored as this piece is now, the finishing process will transform it into a rich brown with silver-bronze accents.

Besides, these lagniappe furniture pieces keep the guys sane between the ten-thousand part behemoth projects.

Come on back, they'll be more next month, or sooner if the mood strikes me!
