Maple Bathroom Vanity

This is the beginnings of an elegant bathroom vanity being built for a local client. The doors are slab style, constructed with a three ply interior substrate and veneered with shop sawn eastern maple. The interior is pre-finished maple ply. There will be two slide out shelves and a pair of med-shelves hung on the right door.

The client plans a vessel style sink with a granite counter top.Dimensions are 30w x 20d x 32h.The sink rim will top out at about 38" when all is installed.

Wood working show a success

The gallery was jammed. The Atrium was too. They drank all the wine and ate all the food. The show opening was a success, if bottles of wine and trays of food consumed is any indication. Or folks were just hungry and thirsty. I believe it was the former. We all had fun, basking in our patrons compliments, enjoying the good conversation. And every day there after, for the ten days of the show,  it seemed that there was never an opprtuinity to sit and read my book. Folks were always coming through, looking, touching oohing and aahing.

Above and right are photos of the Kitchen Catch-all the I presented for the wood show. Folks loved the elm., especially as it is a material not often see. Remember Dutch elm disease? They also liked the walnut figured panel on the upper shelving back. Another point of comment is the black board on the back. I was surprised that there weren't more comments about the basketry.

Next up is the Open Studio Tour. It will be fun to see how many folks come over the two days of the event, September 25th and 26th.
