Well its been a while since I posted. I havn't really been up to a whole lot. I got the record storage units built and Doug my painter sprayed them with lacquer this week. I must confess I did screw one of them up, so I have to make one more. Here are some pictures I took while I was cutting all the material, and glueing them up. I'll be selling my tablesaw soon I found a larger saw for myself so if anybody who reads this is interested just message me.
This is the various shapes all cut out ready for glue up.
Glue up was a real pain since the shapes are so complex. I think they turned out pretty cool, not as perfect as I imagined them but hey I'm still getting the hang of this. I have several other projects on the boards. My neighbor Eric and I are gettting ready to start a small desk for his house. I'm also getting ready to start on a Teak shower bench for a project I helped design at work. I possibly have a few more bookcases for another client and I'm also talking to someone about doing a small childrens bed. So as you can see the work is piling in but thats good I'm trying to save up to buy a truck to make things alot easier.
I am a third generation home builder in the Kansas City area. I grew up working for my Fathers construction company and I graduated w/ an Architecture degree from Kansas State University in 2005. I hope to eventually combine my two passions into a Design Build Company. I am currently working for myself at Studio Build doing projects in the Kansas City area. I'm currently looking for design/build work in the area and am tackling several local projects. Please contact me if you would like to discuss a project.
The following links are ones that I found throughout my remodel process. I purchased things from many of the sites, I'm not affiliated with any of them though I could be if for some reason they want to send me some free stuff. Hopefully these help some of you in your own adventures.
