Home Office Project

Posted by on Sep 6, 2013

This project was a built-in desk with front and side storage cabinets for a home based office that we built and installed in Cumberland R.I. earlier this year. The client wanted to utilize a small third floor room as a home office as well as hide the slant and box which are the foyer ceiling and chandelier mounting box. We designed a piece that is functional, attractive and within their desired budget.

The front and side cabinets were constructed from maple plywood and solid maple which we finished with a semi-gloss white to help brighten up the room. The doors are flush mount inset style with soft close hinges and all of the shelving is adjustable for maximum functionality. The large desk top is made from 1 ¾” thick solid cherry wood and is 4 feet deep and 7 feet long. It was finished with a semi-gloss clear finish and is supported by a couple of decorative turned legs which are finished to match the cabinets.

If you are thinking of adding a custom office or library to your home or if you’re looking to utilize an odd shaped room, please give me a call at (401) 639-8140 for an in home consultation.

Finish Carpentry

Posted by on May 31, 2013

This is a recent project that we performed for David D. of Cranston, R.I. who is a long time client that purchased this house in Warwick, R.I. for a high-end rental.

We started this project by replacing eleven interior doors with new prehung 6 panel solid pine doors, we also replaced the two old wooden exterior doors with new fiberglass ones and installed all new door casings. On the first floor we installed crown molding, chair rail and applied panels made from moldings for the wainscoting. We continued the chair rail and wainscot up the stairs and replaced the painted railing and balusters with new oak ones. Upstairs we installed new windows and doors along with new casings and chair rail. We also built and installed four built-in shelving units with doors and a new access door for the attic storage.

Below are some before, in progress and completed pictures after the painters were finished. If you are looking to add some more character to your home with new crown molding, chair rail or wainscot please contact me for an in home consultation.

Marine Woodworking

46’ Searay Yacht Remodel

This project is a remodel of a 1986 46’ Searay docked in Warwick, R.I. I described the building of the curved stairs in a previous project (click here to view the curved stair project), I will now talk about the rest of the work that we performed which was all of the woodworking aspects of this boat remodel including the construction, finishing and installation.

Starting on the way into the main salon area, we built new stairs and counter tops and refaced the cabinets adjacent to the stairs. To the right is the kitchen area where we refaced the cabinets, made all new doors and drawer fronts and added new edging to the existing counter. We removed the old microwave and built a cabinet to house a new one with storage to the left of it. We also cut in a larger sink and installed a new cook top with a custom butcher block cutting board built-in to the counter in front of the cook-top  We replaced the flooring in the kitchen area with hand scraped walnut glued down over the old parquet flooring.

In the main salon we built and installed new shelving above all the seating areas and made new doors for all of the storage compartments. We added a large trim piece surrounding the ceiling hatch and installed a bunch of moldings to enhance the interior with wood. We did a little work on the main deck, we added Teak moldings and inlays for mounting electronics in the dashboard.

If you are looking to have any marine woodworking performed to your power or sailboat, whether it be a full remodel or just a few pieces of molding in the Warwick or East Greenwich area feel free to contact me at any time.

Custom Kitchen Cabinets

Posted by on Feb 25, 2013

This project is a complete set of custom kitchen cabinets that we designed, constructed and installed for the mother of a long time friend. This project was part of a large remodel that involved moving a wall and a staircase in order to enlarge the kitchen. All of the surrounding construction and finish work was performed by Steve La Combe, owner of Lynne Construction.

The client spoke with other kitchen companies and decided to go with custom kitchen cabinets because of the flexibility in design and the quality we offer which allowed her to have some unique elements that other companies could not offer. One challenge with designing this kitchen was the fact that we had one long 23’ wall to work with and she wanted a sitting area at one end with a television that could also be viewed from the rest of the kitchen. We were able to proportionately design the cabinets with the television area by adding a tall pullout pantry on the side of the refrigerator which also allows for quite a bit of extra storage. To add character to an otherwise long row of cabinets we bumped out the refrigerator cabinet a little deeper than normal and lowered and inset the television cabinet and made the cabinet above the television deeper than the rest of the upper cabinets.

On the other side of the kitchen we made cabinets with glass doors and glass shelves to display glassware as well as a built-in wine bottle and wine glass rack. Some of the other custom touches we added were glass topped doors with in-cabinet lighting on the upper cabinets, furniture feet on the base cabinets and two solid Mahogany counter tops to contrast the other counter and the white cabinets. We were also able to fit a large file drawer under the television.

These custom kitchen cabinets were all constructed from maple plywood and all doors and drawer fronts from hard maple with MDF panels to minimize movement during seasonal changes in temperature and humidity. The drawer boxes were made from soft maple with dovetail construction and finished with a clear water based finish. The exterior of the cabinets were finished with a semi gloss white. All of the door and drawer hardware are Blum brand with soft close technology for a lifetime of quiet use and durability.

If you are having a hard time finding just the right size or style cabinets from mass-produced kitchen cabinet providers, please give us a call. With our design knowledge and commitment to quality we can help make your dream kitchen a reality.
