Before and after shots of the ranch house project. I loved seeing the space transformed, but I didn't love meeting my first, second and third real life rattlesnakes.
We made it to New Mexico and it is spectacular! Crazy long drive from LA but now I'm just taking in the scenery and enjoying a well earned break. I'll set to work tomorrow installing all the pieces. Can't wait to see everything together!
Getting ready a 12 hour drive to a New Mexico ranch to install all the custom pieces I've been making for the past 8 weeks. Can I fit a platform bed frame with underside drawers, a dining table, a desk, a file system, a shelving system and all the tools I'll need to install them into this small cargo van? We'll find out shortly!
Ranch house dining nook coming along nicely here at the shop. Drawers done and now onto making some base trim.....oh, and a table I suppose.
The view from our flat at Royal William Yard in my hometown of Plymouth. It was a Royal Navy victualling yard for 150 years before being decommissioned and turned into flats and shops.
We're on holiday in London this week. Caught this great exhibit at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Definitely visit if you're in the area. As you can see, I was very excited.
A white oak TV cabinet I did for a client who wanted her remote control to work even if the cabinet doors were closed. Really happy with the way this piece turned out.
A very "Mad Men" credenza in progress. I love the continuous grain across the front. It's going to be really striking once the finish goes on.
I spend lots of time sanding. LOTS OF TIME. Fortunately, we live in the age of podcasts, so now my sanding time is my podcast time.
Here are a few of my favorites. There's a bit of music, some storytelling and a bit of entertainment industry chat. They're all free, so giving them a little love is the least I can do for all they do for me. I've embedded links, so click on any of the images to learn more.
If you have a favorite podcast you think I should check out, please leave a comment.
