Our 1st Carving!!
Though this has been “on the list” to try for some time, we needed a special order to give us the push and it happened.
The font style and size of the T needed to be chosen. Our client picked Merriweather, we recommended the size and away we go!
The template for the T took some time and with a few adjustments the carving begins. We did have a backup large board – just in case.
The best wood species for your project, depends on the project scope (of course). Today we are discussing walnut for cabinetry, counter tops and accessories.
Bring on the Walnut!
- Black Walnut – Juglans nigra
- Native to the Eastern US and Canada – Cool

This wooden frame is something else – even the back is picture worthy…Do you agree?

Keeping it Simple?
Whether you are interested in custom cabinetry, a counter top, a picture frame or a cutting board – we happily recommend walnut wood.
Almost done. Next are the wood tops above the bookcases, some simple molding and voila!
We need more “stuff” on the shelves!
And, maybe a bigger plant in the window.
