This project, as mentioned in the previous post, is a wall of painted shelves and fitted cabinets for clients in Kemptown, Brighton. It is built from MDF and finished with a satinwood paint.
The large fitted wardrobe from the last blog post is now finished. This triple wardrobe includes 4 hanging rails and 8 drawers. The cabinets are constructed from melamine laminated MDF. The sliding doors are grooved to emulate traditional paneled doors and finished with satinwood paint.
The photos here show some oak-edged shelves I built and fitted this week. The shelves are to be painted and the oak oiled.
The photos below show a 3-in-one sash window I have been working on. The client asked for a double glazed sash window to match the original style of the windows in the neighbouring properties. The glazing bars and rails are machined slightly larger than traditional ones to accommodate the double glazed units. Low-e units and a draught-proofing system are used for improved thermal efficiency.
I will add further photographs once the window has been glazed and installed.
This next project is a whole wall of box type shelving. For storage of books and records etc. The shelves are constructed as a whole collection of different boxes from moisture resistant MDF. The boxes will be primed and painted and put together to produce a 12′ 6″ high shelving unit. I will add further photographs as the work progresses.
Today I fitted a bathroom cabinet in a property in Hove. Click images to view a few photos of the cabinet in the workshop and in the bathroom. The cabinet was built to the clients specifications with glass shelves and a professionally sprayed finish.
If you would like me to quote for fitted bathroom, bedroom or kitchen cabinets please get in touch.
I was asked to construct, install and glaze some very tall windows and a door for a garden studio. The client is a Brighton-based artist & designer who required extra space to enable him to work from home. The front wall of the studio is formed of five glazed frames each 10’2″ (3.1m) tall and is constructed from softwood using traditional joinery techniques. The following photographs show the work in progress…
These shelves are made from oak and MDF for clients in Brighton. They wanted some shelves to span a six foot alcove. Each shelf is constructed from two boards, each cut to fit between the uneven walls found in older properties. Solid oak strips have been used for the front of the shelving unit. The shelves have been painted and the oak oiled to produce an attractive finish.
