Carpentry: Barn Door

The exterior doors of this lake house are made up of 2×6 tongue and groove boards bolted together. I was able to recreate the look with custom-ordered lumber to craft this sliding barn door for the master bedroom.

The hardware was custom ordered, hand made from a source in Utah.



Carpentry: Rolling Herb Garden

Liz wanted an herb garden she could move from sun to shade as needed. We looked at dozens of ideas, none of which was just right, so I pulled together a sketch with features from several examples to create this rolling planter. Rough-sawn cedar gives it a rustic touch, and over time will weather to a silver-gray patina.

Signage: Lake House Sign

I can’t take full credit for this–the sign had been found on the property, carved, but badly damaged. I repaired the sign, painted it and built the post to hang it.

Crafts: Beer Caddy

So, I decided to make gifts for friends and family for Christmas 2014. This rustic beer caddy includes a distressed bottle opener to complete the look… and the functionality.

Did I mention I also created Wine Caddies?
