Shaker Style Cabinet

Steve built this functional shaker style cabinet for Julie and her family to provide additional storage and appeal for a semi alcove area.  The drawers and doors are full overlay (meaning they sit on the outside of the cabinet rather than inset) and have the traditional shaker style.  This piece was unique with a second set of doors above the counter.  The doors directly above the counter are able to fold into the sides of the bookcase to store out of the way.  Steve used a bead board backing to add charm when the doors are open.  Julie choose a nice warm neutral color that complements the stained countertop and knobs.  The bottom features “feet” rather than a solid kick for added interest.  Great piece for great clients!  

Latest Kitchen Project

A Hyde Park, Ohio condo gets a total renovation. Steve was part of this project under General Contractor Brian Shackleford of Marcel Design Builders and worked closely with the clients to provide custom details and meet all of the wish lists, personal style, organization needs and functionality. The results are stunning! The Client has not moved in yet so these are  pictures of the bare bones before decorating, but I was anxious to share!

The Kitchen was finished with an awesome warm gray/green with “Absolute Black” countertops.

How does a custom cabinetry piece come to life?  As with most things, it starts with an idea, a vacant space, a need, a picture.  Sylvia knew she needed something on either side of the fireplace to complete the room.  But, she had a window above each area so the traditional bookcases to the ceiling wouldn’t work.  They also needed somewhere for their TV components to hide.

Sylvia saw this piece of furniture and loved the detail on it, especially the fluted casing that would match the fireplace surround.  She also liked the bottom/leg detail that gives this piece a unique look rather than the typical straight bottom.

So, after working with Sylvia to iron out all of the details Steve began the project in his cabinet shop.

 

And, here’s the finished project in Sylvia’s house.  Exactly as she imagined and looking awesome.

What a transformation to the room!

Notice the matching details to the fireplace surround – fluted casing, pedestal base.

No more wires for the TV components.  They’re there, just hidden inside the cabinetry.

 

 

Custom Home Office Cabinetry

Standard

More and more of us are working from home nowadays – which for me is awesome!  Our clients, Rod and Sandy run a successful home siding business in Northern Kentucky (Casco Siding LLC).  While most of Rod’s actual work is, of course, on the job site he still needs a place to study blueprints and work on proposals.  Sandy manages the office and bookkeeping aspects of the business.  And, like most, they “made do” with on-hand desks, filing cabinets and storage.  And, like most of us, it gets to the point where it just isn’t working anymore.  So, they called on Steve to help them design and build their ideal home office.  From numerous in-home consultations and phone calls, Steve learned that they were looking for a rustic, natural look to match their quaint country in-the-woods setting.  The finished product is a functional, awesome looking home office that they are in love with and gives them the functionality, space and organization they were seeking.  (See their comments about Steve and Woodwork Designs on Angie’s List.)  Maple cabinets have a warm cinnamon chestnut stain with distressed finish.  The doors are shaker style overlay with rustic hardware and the door covering the hard drive has a unique antique tin venting to allow for air flow.  They chose a laminate countertop (“Verdi Oxide”) for easier writing (firmer surface than wood).  The walls are painted a beautiful blue/green (“Observatory Night Sky”) that shows off the warm wood tones.  It’s great when you have great clients (and friends) like Rod and Sandy.  How about you?  Could your home office use a make-over?  In the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area?  Contact Steve at 859.380.0127 or email us at grayoctober384@aol.com to see how we can make your personal life and work life more organized and enjoyable.
