This is some woodwork / cabinetry I did in a newly expanded attic, done to match the rest of the early 1900s home right down to the custom the 4-layer floor moulding that was shaped on-site. What’s shown is mostly the removable HVAC covers that tie into the trim and a “towel warming bench” that hides the ductwork. I particularly like how the floor trim tied into the stairs. I expanded the attic with a small crew, and after the flooring was in I was left alone with a 24ft rolling workshop to do the woodwork.

Nice work on that baseboard. Curious, is all that raw wood gonna get painted?

@wildwoodbybrianjohns thank you! The baseboard was done in oak and got a medium brown semi-transparent stain, like a walnut color.. It’s dark enough to contrast the floor and not look like “too much wood” but still let’s the grain and nature show through.

@jcinva thank you! They were really fun to design and tie into the rest of the trim and windows without it looking to pieced together.

Have your say...
