OLD GROWTH FIR SLAB DINING TABLE
This old growth douglas fir table measures 39" x 90." The piece of ancient wood was dug up from a log found in the Washington State Olympic rain forest. You can count 380 growth years from one side of the table to the other - the pith of the tree to the outside cambium layer. While working on this project I often contemplated what was happening when it was a young sprout back in the 1620's. While it has a shrinkage crack at both ends, I enjoyed keeping it as big and organic as possible inlaying a wood butterfly to keep it from opening up much more.

HOME OFFICE DESK
Solid stock mahogany desktop with VG Fir panels. Here we use a water-based finished which does not darken/amber the wood as do the oil-based finishes.
Below you'll see the drawers pulled out showing the printer and flat-bed scanner in a drawer.

A pheasant tail fly worked well just beyond this kitchen window here on a catch and release part of the Lewis River. Genuine Honduran mahogany is for boatbuilding, and works for kitchen and bath countertops too if they are not too busy. The polyurathane satin-flat finish is durable and ambers nicely with sunlight. Berkely Tack of St. Helens hand-forged the hinges and pulls.

MASTER VANITY BATH CABINET
Here's a bath cabinet with a raw umber stain on cherrywood. It's screwed to the wall of course, but it's designed to look freestanding on it's own legs. For a fun accent we had the tile guy glue some black tiles to the feet. The drawers in front of the sinks are not false but face very functional U- shaped drawers around the plumbing. I'm sorry that our nice matching cherry mirrors on the wall above got chopped out of the shot. I better go back and photo again.

BLACK WALNUT KITCHEN
Modern elements such as self-closing full extension drawer slides are disguised behind old world face frames. Here are simple frame and panel faces and end panels that stand on the floor. This is a roll-out drawer style Sharp microwave and trim kit with warming drawer below having our paneled wood face.

WINDOW SEAT & DRAWERS
This window seat has drawers that use heavy duty full extension slides. I insist on thicker plywood drawer bottoms because I've witnessed rambunctious children standing in these types of very accessible cabinet drawers.

CVG FIR DOORS
Clear Verticle Grain Fir naturally ambers with sunlight. I like it's simplicity and clean pencil-thin lines. You can tell this is old growth stock because of the fine tight grain lines. It can also be resawn from recycled wood beams.
