Flashback to November when I made my 1st Maloof joinery project. This guitar pick stool idea I got from Paul at @canadianwoodworks after watching his video making one. I can say building this project I learned a lot about sculpting wood and how simple the Maloof joint actually is. Now that I have the jigs to make the joint, template for the legs, and the ambition to make more, I cannot wait to make another one. This week I will be making one from Ash and Cherry as these are some of my favorite woods. Check out my stories and IGTV soon for content on making the new stools.
Who else has a project to look forward to this new year
Turns out Montauk is not the END. Evidently it’s Malibu.
BEFORE AND AFTER 👉🏻 The client was referred to us seeking a renovation of an aging balustrade/railing, which had become unstable, as part of a broader home refresh.
After assessing the staircase itself to be sound, and structurally suitable for renovation, we assisted by designing, manufacturing and installing this all new Hamptons-style balustrade and railing system on Friday.
It has truly brought this staircase back to life and once all is sanded and painted, will ensure it is a central feature of this Brighton home for years to come.
Unfortunately we’ve had one small dampener to our super exciting week - vandalism.
Why on earth someone would waste their time writing nasty messages on people’s site (and windows!) is beyond me. Obviously someone doesn’t know how home builds work and that most of the time all the trees need to be removed to lay the slab 🤦🏻♀️
Thankfully the cleaning team have already removed the marker from the glass doors and we’re crossing our fingers the offender feels vindicated now and will leave us alone 🙄
They obviously didn’t know that @stroudhomes plant 15 native trees for every home they build as part of their reforestation initiative 🌲 and that we’ll OBVIOUSLY be replanting loads of trees once we move in - I’d like some shade in our yard!
Have you experienced vandalism on your build Was it just a once off or was it ongoing 👎🏻
🎉 FINAL COUNTDOWN! 🎉 .
We are well and truly in our final stages now and I can’t wait!
This week has been an absolute whirlwind of plumbers, electricians, wardrobe fitters, garage door repairmen and cleaners. 👷🏽♂️👷🏻♀️👷👷🏼♀️👷🏻♂️
We’ve had electrical and plumbing fit offs (including my giant bath tub!), all the wardrobe and linen cupboard rails and shelves installed and all our special pendant lights fitted. Thankfully I think all our choices have come together really beautifully! Phew 😅
Next week brings some site cleaning, our front stone columns being installed and our floors being laid!
BRING. IT. ON! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
SWIPE TO REMOVE FENCE! ➡️➡️➡️
Fence was removed today and we’re SO in love! Now the whole street can see how pretty our new home is! .
As you might see, all our exterior lights have been installed - it’s been a massive week on site so prepare for the incoming update spam!
