May Daze

May was consumed by a large built-in project.  While the construction itself was not complex, the size made it somewhat challenging given that KR Woodworking is largely a one-man shop.  The project consisted of three parts – a 16′ x 10′ entertainment center, 13′ x 10′ office bookcases, and a custom 3′ x 5′ desk.  All pieces were built out of maple and stained and painted to the customer’s specifications.

Following are some pictures of the pieces in process…

After construction, everything was stained or painted in preparation for installation…

The biggest take away from this project is to allow as much lead time as possible.  Especially when working on this scale, all the finishing details take time.  And those are not details to be rushed.  That said, this project came together beautifully.
