master bath

Here’s a master bath I did in Newport. It has a “hers” and a “his” wall. Her wall is the longer wall with the vanity prep area. His wall is the side with the custom arched doors I made. The uppers are beaded framed with inset doors. The base cabinets are frameless. All the arched mouldings are laminated pieces done on a jig then routed. There is a refridgerator under those doors and a coffee station behind. Because as all of you know, we all need a refridgerator and need coffee in our bathrooms. LOL

Constructive Criticism is more then welcome

Wonderful looking bath. Very regal looking.
Is that birch with a stain and glaze?
How many hours do you have in a job like that??

Thanks for posting

This is Alder with a stain and glaze. It’s also very heavily distressed. It’s hard to say how many hours I have into this because it is a small part of the entire house that we did. I may post pics of the rest of the house. I am not sure if posting this type of work is to acceptable just because it’s the consensus to post furniture and other smaller projects. This is more “businessy” in my opinion and strays off of the point of this site. But, I saw some other projects that were cabinetry and thought I’d share one. I have many more if it’s not a problem to anyone.
Thanks for the comment

Some people just have too much money. What a bath it is bigger than my house. I think of cabinetry as woodworking. It would also post at homerefurbers too.

I’m in awe….The only criticism I might have on this project is quit making the rest of us look mediocre

Are you kidding? Bring it ON!!! We love real pros. It inspires the rest of us wood butchers to greater and greater depths of alcoholism. Hic

Another great job.

It looks like you are just hand planning or scrapping in a hit and miss fashion though, correct me if I’m wrong. But wouldn’t it look better to hand plane the entire surface and hand sand it and blend it all in a little better. Just a thought. And maybe add a little planking to the panels.

Les, are you talking about the flatness of the panels? The panels were completely flat and sanded smoother then a babies butt. Then the customer said make it distressed to the extreme. I looked at my door and thought “well, what a waist of time making these perfect that was”. It made me cringe.

Fantastic details! Thanks for posting.

I agree that it is distressing to see the distressing.

distressing wood can be a distressing occupation. Love the look even if it is ‘too the max’
