    Some examples of what I do

    Well, I'm really enjoying getting to know you guys on this excellent forum and now that you've seen my shop, it's about time I proved I actually do some work there!

    I got into cabinetmaking from owning a pine furniture store for many years and starting to make the specials and custom pieces that I couldn't source from my usual suppliers. Pieces like these:











    A few years ago, however, the trade in pine took a real nosedive and so I ditched the store (and a lot of overhead) and moved into my present shop. I still work with pine but have got more and more into hardwoods and painted MDF kitchens. Here are a few recent efforts:



    This was quite a challenge for my first project in oak. It's a bit harder than pine, isn't it?!



    A lot of my work is now painted kitchen furniture like this dresser in poplar and maple.



    An early oak project was this 12' run of glazed bookcases





    This maple kitchen is a particular favourite of mine

    Well, that's the kind of thing I do. Please be gentle with me!

    Cheers
    Brad

    Brad,

    All that stuff looks great but the first and fourth pics really got my attention. I have knotty pione in a bedroom at the house and your 'over the bed' deal looks really cool.

    That's a nice range of different projects that all look beautiful in their own place.

    Lets see ..... I saw a bed so you Sleep, I saw Wine holders so you drink, I saw Books so you read, and I saw a kitchen so you eat.

    Thats it, Same as me ... Eat, Sleep, Drink, & Read. Looks pretty good to me....







    Seriously, I are impressed with such great cabinetry...

    That's some great-looking work, Brad. I'd say you've been doing this stuff for a while.
