We just knocked this one out just after Christmas.
Solid Cherry! This job went very smooth except that there wasn’t a square wall in the whole house. The customers were great and the job was right around the corner from the shop. So this made everything okay.
I would have taken more before, during and after photos, but I was pressed for time on this job. I spent too much time fooling around online and not enough time in the shop. However, I did take some pictures of the coffered ceiling and posted some how-to-tips on installing them over at Pops’. I like working with cherry on these projects. It can be a little finicky when it comes to routing edges, but sharp blades and sand paper will take care of that. Right?
Because this room was so out of whack, we could only build the built-ins, desk and tops to completion including the finish in the shop. Everything else including wall panels, coffered ceiling and moldings were all cut a little longer and prefinished in the shop, than cut to fit and assembled on the job. This is one of those jobs where all those years of trim carpentry paid off. I don’t believe there’s a corner in this room that doesn’t have a shim of some sort wedged in it. I told the homeowner not to bring a level anywhere near the room. He said he didn’t own one! We got along great.
