The customer for this fire place Mantel wanted a mantel that fit in nicely with their stone fireplace, but didn’t want something that was too bulky or cumbersome. Together we chose Oak for the material as the floors in the home were also Oak and the contrast of the stone work between the floor and mantle where perfect. I was able to match the mantle perfectly to the floor by getting a custom stain match created with the use of some left over flooring that they had. The end result was a stunning fireplace that is the talk of the home when ever guests enter their living room.
This Laundry Room is in our own home. As seen in our kitchen album called “for the love of all things Rustic and Old” Jen and I both love old looking designs that fit into our country home. Our laundry room cabinets feature Bead Board doors which are complimented by the wooden Bead Board ceilings in the room and the rest of the house. The choice of knobs and antique cup pulls set the cabinetry off and give it that special look that was found so long ago in the work of a true craftsman. While the tile, quartz countertop and appliances are quite modern…everything falls together perfectly and still gives it that old timeless look!
This mud room features hard maple and bead board cabinetry and finished with a custom pigmented lacquer. The customer had seen a picture in a magazine of their ideal cabinetry for their mud room and when we sat down together we found ways to tweak the design and style and make it 100 percent original.
This very custom basement is about as rustic as it can get. The custom pine stair case was build with 2 ½” material and put together without the use of mechanical fasters, it is held together solely with mortise and tendons and hardwood pegs. It was then hand hewn to give the look of old barn timbers. I also made the wide plank pine flooring and V-matched siding material. The floor was then finished in a antique brown stain and topped off with vintage square cut antique nails for added age and detail. The bar is also a major conversation piece and is build out of Wormy Soft-Maple.
cabinetry was custom build for a local engineering firm to house there drawings, store supplies and have large countertop for viewing drawings. At 25 feet long and more than 120 pigeon holes and large upper cabinets, this cabinetry fits right in and the client wonders how they ever did without it.
This customer wanted a desk and custom cabinetry to go along with the antique office chair she had bought from an auction. With allot of hard work, I was able to copy the details of the chair and build a very custom Hard Maple desk and built in cabinetry and finish everything with a nice creamy, pigmented lacquer.
This cherry cabinetry features mitred doors (picture frame style) for a very clean and modern look that is different than most other types of cabinetry. The mantle, very much like the fire place its self is very original looking and is accented by mouldings and solid cherry top and base moulding.
