Carpet shop retrofitting.

Marquetry project



















These are plinths for sculptures. I have made them from different veneers like wenge, walnut, mahagonny, spruce and sycamore to client designs. Each about 70 cm wide, all 8 cm high.









Kitchens











This kitchen is designed by me and hand made from walnut veneered MDF. The main problem was to fit all appliances, big american style fridge and boiler in really small area 3,5 x 2,5 meters. The worktop is made from Corian, a DuPont® conglomerat. Blum hinges and runners.





























Fitted kitchen from SELCO. The doors are made from laquered MDF.







Sitting room



2 units and floating shelves.







Custom made units and floating shelves, MDF, not painted yet.



Little girl room















This room is all my own design. All made from 18 and 25 mm MDF painted to client choice.

This is a walking wardrobe which I manage to fit in an small, unused area over existing staircase, over them I fixed hanging rail and shelves on wall.







This is another RCJ design which I installed.







These pics just to show my skill in installation of RCJ furniture.





This wardrobe I have cut and fit for my another former employer, Tudor Thomas Design, the main difficult was the shape of wall.



This is inside of wardrobe, which I prefer, specially with painted doors and clear varnished MDF looks very nice.







Radiator covers





These are made from MDF (not painted), I like simple design of them.



Made by me to cover big radiators.



Another cover from MDF.                                                                Custom made cover painted white.







Bathroom units





This unit is made from moisture resistant MDF, painted white with framed door and 30 mm oak top to client design.





These units I have made from walnut veneered MDF. Mirror was glued to the fronts. Floating sink units.





Stairs and floor renovations



Part of big project. Stairs covered with white oak. Glass baluster. White painted MDF.









Steps and raisers covered with new wood.



This is example how I fix floorboards.





Using my Festool Domino I can do banisters without any screws and fixings which is important with clear finish.







New flooring



This is nailed oak floor. Very nice and strong. I am using special gun and staples to fix floorbords to plywood.



This is a sample of floating floor, very good quality. I dont like this kind of floor because of moving and making noise. This specific floorboards, made in germany, dont have these problems.







Door fitting









To fit hingens and locks I am using special jigs, just to make this look professional and nice.







Fencing, decking, paving



I do a lot of fences and deckings, especially when weather is good.







This is example of fancy cladding, I did this from simple boards. Window and door is done from sapele wood.





Shutters









Laundry unit









Other furniture



Cutting table with lino top made from redwood and MDF.







Bike sheed with movable top, size 3.6x1.2x1.4 m



This is a sheed to store bikes, the problem was narrow space, thats why I designed movable top. Now there is enough space for 8 bikes.











Samples of flooring marquetry, made from diffrent species of european and exotic wood (oak, beech, maple, wenge, irocco, merabou, padouk, walnut, ash, cherry, greenwood). The top layer of wood, glued to plywood, is minimum 7 mm thick so it can be sand and last hundrets years.
