Custom Cabinets are typically our most requested items. They come in all shapes and sizes, serve any number of utilitarian purposes, and often are the focal point in a room.
PERUVIAN WALNUT exterior AMBROSIA MAPLE interior SAPELE accents
This cabinet was designed to house the clients "sexy" things. She wanted a special place to put all the things that make her feel special--namely jewelry and intimates.
She wanted the exterior to have a very timeless, classic look that wouldn't go out of fashion and an interior that was brighter and a little wilder to reflect her own personality.
We were able to "dress-up" the exterior with pinstripes, carved feet and glass knobs.
The interior is bright, fun, and very detailed. The interior also has a soft touch--we lined the drawers, staging tray, and door interior with a suede-like fabric. We chose grey for the fabric color to match the grey hues of the ambrosia maple striping.
WALNUT exterior CHERRY interior WENGE and Moradillo accents
This cabinet was designed with a family in mind. The idea was to hide away all the things that accumulate in the entryway--bags, toys, shoes, toys, keys, umbrellas, and toys. The client also wanted the cabinet tall enough to display valuables and burn candles high out of their children's reach.
We chose a highly figured piece for the book-matched doors and agreed to leave the knot holes open for a bit of natural visual interest and texture.
Top opens for low-use items.
Hidden drawer in the base of the cabinet.
A little custom space management here. I needed to house a television, TV components, some storage, and an electric fireplace/heater within 12 square feet of floor space...
The homeowner approved a full floor-to-ceiling unit. I used it all. You may call it a TALL task...
TV and components are mounted to a sliding "drawer" of sorts. This give access for wiring and maintenance.
The fireplace surround is removable for maintenance and vented on the bottom. for air-flow.
AFRICAN MAHOGANY exterior CEDAR interior
This one of the first gifts to my wife. It holds linens, some knitting supplies and who knows what else.
It has a hidden compartment under a cedar-lined false bottom where she keeps her wedding dress.
Nice way to hide the trash and display the junk.
RECYCLED PRESSURE TREATED
This was one of my favorite projects. The clients needed some outdoor storage for a new deck they were building. They wanted something rustic generally, but gave me full artistic freedom. I asked their contractor to let me pick through the old boards from the demoed deck. This re-purposed lumber combined with some recycled hardware, a bit of old screen, and some chalk board plywood makes for a very fun, eclectic, and rustic piece.
....Oh yes, and they were also able to stow away their new deck clutter...
Twin storage cabinets flanking a fireplace and TV. They house clients' media, games, media players, speakers, etc.
A treasure chest was the inspiration for this design. The client can hides plenty of treasures inside this roomy box.
