Custom cutting boards


After I made custom cutting boards for myself and family I was surprised how many people were looking for a quality wood cutting board and something different then what was available in the store. Like most woodworkers, I try to use all my scraps for something useful. These are just a small sampling of boards that I have made over the last few years.

Every board is hand made depending on what I have available. If you would like one just contact me and see what I have in the works.

Dual Bathroom Vanity

Dual bathroom vanity for a beach house in Anna Marie Island Florida. Our client was looking for a vanity that would last in a home on the beach. After several attempts at big box vanities, I was contracted to build a vanity that not only would last but added storage solution for a small bathroom. Although the bathroom is small there is plenty of room for two.

Because longevity was a concern a marine grade ply was used for the cabinet. Our client wanted large open space under both sinks which she added pull outs after the vanity was installed. To provide durability the inside of the vanity was finished with laminate in a dove gray color to match the color used in the bathroom. This is not common but will last a life time.

Display Case construction

The display case was designed to separate into 4 main pieces. Top, bottom and 2 halves of cabinet. This unit was made to fit into a service elevator for delivery to an eighth floor condo. Careful measurements were taken to ensure the finished dimensions were what the client wanted and to be able to deliver it.

Although this is not a deep cabinet it was visible from the sides so we had the opportunity to add raised panels giving this a more classy look. The back panel was stained black allowing the grain to show through and the cabinet was finished in a matte black as per our clients specification.

Lock miter joints were used to stiffen the end panels and eliminate the need for nails or screws. This is an extremely strong joint with a large surface area for glue. Once assembled the joint seam is at the corner. Light sanding and finished it is difficult to tell that the piece of wood is actually 2 pieces joined together.
