Display Box Build

This is a companion gallery to the Portfolio page gallery for the Display Box.  The client needed a case to house a liquid product he showcases to clients.  The box was built around the dimensions of the jars.  The wood is cherry with a cherry stain and satin poly finish.  It was my first time utilizing cigar box hinges but they came out gorgeously.  At least I think so.



Rocking Chair Rocker Build

The rocker is done at this point and pictures are up on the Portfolio page.  I will be adding the last few galleries that make up the final work done.  This gallery covers the making of the rocker jig and  the ensuing mill and glue up of the rockers themselves.



Barcode Armoire

This armoire was commissioned by a client looking for more storage space for their master bedroom while retaining qualities from a credenza piece they had seen online.  The strong linear exterior detail was the element they loved the most and wanted to retain.  After viewing the inspiration piece, I adapted the look to an armoire with a custom interior layout of three European style drawers below and an upper portion for a closet rod (made of solid wood) that also had the ability to utilize adjustable shelves.  The piece is out of veneered and solid Sapele and will be finished to match existing night stands in the room.  The following gallery documents the first half of the build. This piece will be completed later in the week.
