Basement Office/Lounge/Relaxation room

Basic gut and renovate. Homeowner wanted a multi use space where she could relax as well as keep up with things on her computer. Also a new desk area for her husband by the stairs. Shop built cabinets with all the Blum Blumotion goodies. Rift sawn oak desk tops and seeded glass doors. All the water shutoffs and meters are buried in a false cabinet front on the far left lower corner. Still accessible with the door. New railings and tread end caps.
Basically it all is new, wall framing, foam insulation, wiring, recessed lights, under cabinet lighting, windows, doors, etc.

The before…sort of…we already started ripping and tearing at the point of thinking about snapping some photos.

Very Nice crisp work. It also looks like you installed a pocket door by the second desk (near the stairs). Great solution. I also like the disguise for the plumbing. Really well done! I’ll bet your client is thrilled.

I’m envious of your skill.

Beauteous young man. Beauteous. There you go with your coatings. Two-part again? What was the material you sprayed on? Is that poly on the oak? What stain did you use – gel? I really like everything. Did you turn the balusters?

Questions, questions, questions – I know.

I need to pick the brain of a master craftsman if I’m going to get better.

Have you used Grass slides? They have under-mount soft close slides for about half the price of Blum. Nothing against Blum (use them as much as I can), but cost somewhat dictates what I use.

Again, awesome job!

Magna-Lac pigmented lacquer on poplar. Except the larger doors, they are maple for some added stability. Satin cabinet lacquer on the desk tops with Old Masters wiping stain sealed then sprayed with toners to minimize the grain, clients request. It started with the oak on the stairs. “Too much grain showing, can you mute it down”
So out comes the sprayer and and dyes. Problem solved.
Balusters compliments of Home Depot. Have to pinch some pennies here and there…lol

I get the Blum hardware from Richelieu for fairly decent pricing (wholesale) so I have not tried Grass. I did use Accuride hidden slow-close once. That was one time to many, getting tired of ordering replacement parts for the homeowner.

Thanks for all the compliments everyone. It was a fun build.

Great work Gary, Very quality. Lines all look good, finish is spectacular. Love the seeded glass, nice touch.

Some day I will have to give the Magna-Laq a try.
(I’m still stuck on SW pre-cat.)

Do you mind me asking what equipment you are spraying with?

Thanks Jonathan, I used my Graco 4900 turbine HVLP with the Magna-Lac thinned down with a medium dry thinner. I recently purchased a gravity feed compliant air gun and will give that a try on the next batch. Should be able to lay it down faster with that.
SW doesn’t carry diddly in my area. They have to order any CAB products and they cannot custom tint. I use Mohawk DuraCoat clears and may give their pigmented a try.

Thanks Gary, Sorry I forgot to get back here to tell you thanks.

One of these days I will have to switch from my pressure pots.
It’s just hard to change from something that has been working.

I won a Graco “air assist” spray gun from the woodworking show.
They run about 5-600 bucks but you have to have an airless with air assist to use it.
I was thinking of switching to that system. At the show the gun and airless w/air assist sprayed from a heavy spray to a nice soft mist, sprayed like a dream but, it was only water going through the system.

I’ve sprayed lacquers with an airless before with descent results but never with an airless that had air assist. The air assist lets you atomize the product as needed which you can’t do with a regular airless.

I hear a lot of good things about the gravity feed guns.
Good Luck with yours.

A natural office furniture seems good for this kind of office-like interior structure.
