Needham WoodFest Part 2

This is a master bedroom wall unit I just finished, made from poplar. The fireplace surround has raised panels upper and lower with fluted columns on each side. Window seats with four drawers each and base cabinets/bookcases flank each side of the fireplace, and as a finishing touch crown moulding throughout the room. I built this from a sketch and at times became very challenging to pull this all together but I'm happy with the result and hope that George & Kelly are too.

Fireplace Surrounds

Here is a mantel cap I did for a couple, they just wanted to keep it simple and not take away from the beautiful stone fireplace.This is a fireplace surround I did for a couple who just moved from Pittsfield MA. where they had an older home and Cathy asked me if I could reproduce the fireplace surround they had. She supplied pictures of the surround and this is what I came up with.Danielle hired me to build a surround from a picture she found in a magazine and asked that I fan out the top mantel cap with moulding and add fluted columns. I finished this in Ben Moore Decorators White.

Ashland Double Built In

This is a built in I made for a couple in Ashland, I was referred to them by their neighbors who had me build a similar unit.Its made from poplar with arched face frame and adjustable shelves on the bookcase, and slightly frosted glass doors so all the AV equipment can be controlled with a remote. I finished it in Ben Moore White.
