Front Porch Job

01-13-2016 03:13 AM by dustynewt | 99 comments »

I posted this blog on LumberJocks about seven months ago.

Bathroom Remodel #8: A little trim

The face is 2” thick cherry, which will be carved, so I had to modify the clamp for my dovetail jig to hold it in place while I cut the dovetails: And then the top is an inset sink into a block of the same marble we used for the diagonal pattern: Because the inside of vanities can be super nasty, the side is a louvered panel to provide airflow: And the drawer is notched to fit around the drain: The front of the vanity is carved: And then I had to ...

08-04-2015 11:26 AM by Katies_DIY_Blog | 75 comments »

I’m sure we can all have a good go at creating a modern interior with modern styles and trends. We can all buy a bunch of materials and tools and get to work on a brand new untouched space and finish with a masterpiece.
