Still freezing out there, 15 below last night, so, I am posting a few old projects. This is a bath I re-did for my sweetie Cindy, at her old house on Bald Mt. I re-did the entire room, but the tub was there, just with no cover on it. Of course the painting, plaster, new linoleum, reinstalling the toilet, and the tile work around the tub don’t count as wood work, but, all the other stuff was custom fitted wood work, including the continuous one piece floor trim which I made some decorative cuts in. Try making a continuous 15 foot trim cut on a table saw with a 1950 or so three blade craftsman cutter, don’t want to do that anymore, that is why they use router and shaper bits for that. The tub I surrounded with recycled tongue and grove wall boards left over from Cindy’s Dad’s camp, which is now Cindy’s camp.
The tub is trimmed with custom cut wood trim made to conform to it’s shape, both at the top and bottom of the tub, and the tile is surrounded also. Lots of custom shapes to conform to, I made cardboard stencils of most of the pieces, then went home to the barn shop and produced the pieces. trimmed around the window and door, I used a store bought door, which I hung. When Cindy sold the house, the lady of the house said she just loved the bath and it was a big part of their decision to buy. I naturally was flattered. Life is strange, about one year later the house burned to the ground, leaving nothing standing save the beautiful and sturdy outside stairs I completely rebuilt. They rebuilt a brand new house in it’s place, all that is left of my efforts is some pics I share with you. Thanks for looking
