Arts and Crafts
This page is dedicated to items that are more woodworking, craftsmanship or works of art in stone, steel, glass and wood.
Shadow boxes in Oak for Beer Can Collection:
A Murphy Bed, Mitten cabinet and deacons Bench, mop and broom holder all in Birch.
A very nice opportunity to make a cedar entry way as a pergola arbor with a gate was offered to us in this project. Also a very nice mail box with newspaper slots and note box.
This was a fun project all around. We took out an old indoor grill and fan unit and custom made these cabinets to match the ones that were in the rest of the kitchen and had been painted in the craftsman style. The biggest challenge was re/manufacturing the hinges that matched the doors to work on the thin styles of the glass doors.
A custom made hanging planter, shown with winter decorations:
These pictures show a table made form tiles that the lady of the house had collected over the years and wanted to display. Also the back drop blind used to make the deck a more private space.
Another hanging box shown with Halloween decorations. This box dependent upon the season holds spring, summer, Halloween, Christmas and winter decorations and artificial flowers.
A full size wishing well made of retaining wall block to hide the riser vent of a septic system and add an accent. It has a working winch and lights inside glow the surrounding lawn area.
Another full size wishing well made to be a planter for flowering ground covers and annuals. It was made to cover an old cistern drywell that stuck out of the ground, was filled with chlorinated sand and capped per county zoning and had to remain. It is made with quartzite sandstone and mortar.
A front stoop, steps and, path made of fired clay pavers, with cement grout on top of a full frost walled cement base. It matches its surroundings well.
I designed and built this porch swing for Shelby:
More to come!
