Conference table in block mottled makore for an investment firm.


Plain-sliced makore wall panels and poplar (painted) millwork for the same place


Built in casework at the same place


Puppet Theater for a library in Maryland


Circulation desk for the same library in Maryland


46' x 22' desk produced for Bergen County courthouse in New Jersey


Store displays built for the New Jersey aquarium.



I have a mobile sawmill too so I can cut my own wood to use or resell. In this pic I'm sawing a clear cherry log from a dead tree at my brother's house.


Hope that helps get your thread started.
I just found this thread. I'm on TW all they time and still fine new interesting threads. Beautiful work I do have a question. I work in Bergen County NJ and I C U have done work there but live in IN- question is how do you get the work and do U come to NJ 2 do it or make it, ship it and then put it together. Again U do beautiful work - that being said there are custom cabinet makers in NJ so how do U beat them out. Thanks for any reply. Curious George.

The latest is a built-in entertainment center/bookcase/storage-thingy I just finished (the little wine rack isn't part of it--we just need to figure out where to put it):


I designed it using google Sketchup and went through lots of design changes along the way. It's a great program not just for working out a design but also figuring out how it will all fit together and the order of assembly (particularly since I don't do this for living and sort of figure it out as I go). Many costly mistakes have been avoided!


and a built-in bookcase with a display case I did for my in-laws:


And a kayak just for good measure:


I'm about to start on a trestle table using a 6' x 4' x 3" slab of wood I acquired a while back that's been sitting around waiting to be made into something. I'm not even sure what species it is, but it weighs a friggin ton.
"And a kayak just for good measure" way cool anybody can have a fiberglass kayak.

Some photos of a hutch I made. Haven't got the drawer fronts on yet though.
Kinda boring but that's what the architect designed.

That is beautiful. What are you going to put on it for a finish?

Looks awesome rich. Inset doors that size can be tricky. I am assuming they will have glass panels? Looks like walnut correct? Your half blind dovetails on those maple drawer boxes look awesome. Man i gatta get back into cabinetry, hard to land those jobs though.

Hey thanks guys.
As for the finish it's just getting a satin clear coat.
Yes it is walnut with maple drawer boxes and the base cab interior is maple.
The client is putting some kind of a wire mesh type of grill in the doors.
Woodworking is fun but can get kinda boring when you do it every day. I do like it though.

Thank you, my work doesnt even compare with some of the talent in this thread. Carpentry is a full time job, i do a little bit of everything. I wish i could just do woodworking and cabinetry. The high end jobs are few and far between. Someday i would love to do it full time and have a nice shop.

Just got word that we landed the job doing custom butcher block countertops on a kitchen that we have been installing this past week. Pictures will follow! This should be a good one, going to try to talk the customers into doing mirror coat, and a herringbone pattern for the L shaped island, I would also like to stain it a darker color because they went with white cabinets. I am excited about this one.

Blum under mount soft close slides. Hinges are going to be hand made wrought iron mortised into the bead and surfaced mounted on the door. Not my style but that's what the architect wants. I'll get some photos when they're hanging. Could be weeks though. Starting on the butlers pantry in the meantime.
