These are a series of pieces created for a client for a home office with a southwestern design scheme. The woods used are ambrosia maple and cedar. The sliding doors next to the vanity sink hide a bathtub. The hand rail was created from limbs discarded by a tree in my yard during a storm. The tree’s loss was my gain.

Wow, all these designs are easy on the eyes. Has a real warm, homey,rustic look. You used recycled lumber? How long did it take to make all these? Any other projects still in the shop?

Well done!

Thanks for all the nice feedback. I spent a few months on these pieces, however, I was also redoing the inside of this client’s three room home office at the same time (texture, paint, new sheetrock on a damaged ceiling, new floors, new doors, etc.). She was a wonderful client to work for, giving me lots of freedom on the design. I am presently working on another “themed” collection for a different client. She is dedicating a room to a massive assortment of “Popeye” collectibles. I’ll post these pieces as soon as I’m done. The final piece of this three piece work is still in my shop.
