Custom cabinet runThis is a run of custom cabinets that I made. The boxes are 3/4” Baltic Birch and the solids are Poplar.I really wish I had a sprayer, but since I dont, this is completely hand painted.The scalloped shelf supports, while unconventional, really make these cabinet stand out as completely custom. It was a ton of work, but really pleased with the outcome.I included a “before” photo as well.

Sandpipers for Sandpiper

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Sandpipers for SandpiperThis is a little decoration for the galley table on my new to me sailboat Sandpiper. I looked through a lot of photos before I found one I liked. It seems that sandpipers aren't particularly pretty birds on the ground. In flight however it's a different ball game.What really makes this special is the single piece of Indian Rosewood veneer that forms the background. I have a few pieces like this with the sapwood in the centre. (Perhaps you recognize it Elaine)The big challenge to this project was that it is inlayed into my galley table which is teak plywood with extremely thin veneer. It would have been so easy to sand through….Thanks for looking…Paul
