As we continue working on our kitchen, I thought I'd post pictures of the furniture Steve has made for the house. He uses all quarter sawn white oak, mortise and tenon, as well as fuming rather than staining in the arts and crafts style. Below you can see a coffee table he made. It also shows a view of our living room, which is finished as much as it's going to be for now. Steve plans to make a light for the living room out of wood and art glass. I like to say, if you don't like wood, you won't like our house. ;o)
In the living room, we stripped all the woodwork and repaired the plaster using plaster plugs and skim coating. It was a first attempt and is not perfect. We still need to refinish the floors in the house also.
Steve made this Dining Room table-not the chairs- they are still to come. He also stripped the coffered ceiling. When I met him, he was just finishing it. I helped him sand it and stain it. I was very impressed that he had done all that work. Because our kitchen is "in transition," we eat at the dining room table every meal. Who says people don't use dining rooms anymore?
You can see the teak medicine cabinet he made on the bathroom post. Next on the furniture agenda: a plate rack for our kitchen and a light for the living room. I'll post some pictures of design ideas for the light later on.
