Topic tags/keywords: new vanity unit wall paneling

Hi all,

Just joined from the UK.

Used to be a professional carpenter and joiner back in the early 90’s then retired from the construction trade to open up a pizzeria. Owned that for a dozen years or so then moved to internet based business.

Anyway sold my last business recently and went to work for a good friend who has a furniture making comapny supplying the wealthy with custom wardrobes, kitchens, libraries and the like.

I was supposed to be helping in the office but, due to my past (but very rusty) background have been spending more time out on site installing and loving much of it.

It has been great to great the tools out again (last time was best part of a decade ago when I built a timber frame two story extension for my expanding family.

Getting the bug again so thought I would join the forum. Looks like a wonderful community.

Here is a recently completed job for a vanity unit and wall panelling.
