  1. Master Bedroom Remodel

    Quite some months ago, I began remodelling our master bedroom. The original trim was rough sawn red western cedar-quite a rustic look. We decided we wanted something a little more formal so Judy picked out her colors and I began milling black walnut to make custom window and door trim, base...
  2. Carriage House Doors for an Artist's Studio

    We built these Carriage House doors a couple of years ago to convert a garage into an artists studio.

  3. Tree Window

    I've had this fascination with tree branches and antler motiffs lately. This is a window i made for my place. Its actually a "faux" window since where i wanted to put it has a closet on the other side of the wall. Its a true divided lite and is all made from Spanish cedar. I have ideas for a...
  4. Custom Railing with Removable Section

    This is a custom railing that I made for a client. The only reason I post this is the special feature of the removable bottom section, which I thought might be of interest to some.

  7. Arts & Crafts Stairway and Entrance Hall Remodel

    We live in a typical late 70's colonial style house. The house interior was largely featureless with plain ranch style painted moldings, carpeted pine stairs and awful metal handrails. When the opportunity came to remodel the house, we opted for a warmer Arts and Crafts Period look to match...

  9. Entertainment Center via Chippendale, by L J Cabinetry

    More South American Walnut, by L J Cabinet This is my moderately forced interpretation of a Chippendale Block Front Secretary build custom for a client. The preferred proportions were deviated from to get the thing into the 8' room ceiling height. I also had to widen it up a bit in scale to...
