Location: Pacific Northwest

Started eighteen years ago fixing up the house when Mom left for the nursing home. Just thought I'd fix things up inside to increase the lightness on dreary, dark, rainy days in the Northwest. Still working on things. Each project spawns four more. I've done lots of trim work - crown moldings, sub-rails, chair rails, wall frames, and base trim. Built archways to separate rooms and give each its own identity. Last was a rosewood fireplace mantle with crown, dentils, boxes, and half-round marble pillars. This is just a little 1950's rambler, but who knew that it needed so much??!

I really like customizing and creating useful and beautiful things.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Hi Rich,I will find out the exact colors for you this weekend. I was lucky to have an absolute artist working with me on that job. She has a masters degree in fine art & has been a scene backdrop painter for the opera for many years. I trimmed a basement with clear mixed grain doug fir in one room & MDF in the storage room, when I came back so see the stain & finnish on the DF I looked in the other room where she had made faux grain to look just like the wood in the other room! I have seen faux burl dashboards in old cars bet her work blew me away
