Heirloom Cedar Barn Door

This 7′ x 7′ Sliding Barn Door is made from fifty year-old cedar planks and salvaged old growth fir 2x4s from back when they were actually two inches by four inches. The 16′ headboard is also made from vintage fir studs. Door features two vintage leaded glass windows, 1′ x 6′ and is mounted on a double-length rail with slow-close hardware at each end. Sixteen 1/2″ steel dowels hold the whole thing together.

This one tooks me months to build. The windows, at 1/4″ thick, were too fragile to use for the milling and fitting process, so I had to make proxies out of plywood. The whole thing was so big it had to be assembled not only onsite, but on the mezzanine where it lives.

Day Bed Frame with Storage Cabinet and Shoerack Shelf

One of the more idiosyncratic things I’ve built, for the same clients as these built-in bookshelves. Douglas Fir and Birch Plywood, new material.¬†Built onsite under a rain shelter, with the client’s chickens to keep me company.

Built-In Bookshelves

Douglas Fir, new material. Integrated windowsills.

I built these between shop spaces, and so did all the work onsite, in the yard, under an REI shelter. There were chickens.
