I chose ash for my tool chest as it is both attractive and durable. It is an integral part of my shop- it keeps me organized! The woodworking operations within my shop involve a variety of hand tools, and this is where I keep them. The hinged doors are coopered (curved). My chest was featured in one of the tool chest editions of Fine Woodworking Magazine.
White and Bright Kitchen
by Ronnie Sep 17th 2012
The kitchen is intentionally white and bright because it is an interior space. Yet, the theme of “earth and water” brings a warm and elegant feel to the kitchen. Sheldon’s task was to bring my vision of this space into the look and feel of the custom cabinetry. In particular, the curve of the island and the intersection of the painted wood, granite, stainless steel and birds eye maple surfaces presented a clear challenge. I am thrilled with the look and feel of the completed kitchen. I continue to be amazed by the beauty of the center island. There is a mystery to the way that Sheldon conjoined all the pieces. In addition, the cabinetry is beautifully executed in a soft painted finish. And the lighted display boxes, in their simplicity, perfectly showcase my colorful glass pieces.
