The Mantle Project

The Mantle Project

The Mantle Project When we landed at our current residence, the fireplace mantle was nothing more than a single brick sticking halfway out of a solid brick wall. This did not bode well with the boss. I was tasked with the mission of creating a space where stockings could be hung along with other assorted visual causeri... more>>>

The Coffee Table As it happens, in my happy marriage, sometimes you just have to do what the boss wants. If she wants it, she gets it. I am constantly shown pictures, dragged into stores, and bombarded with requests to build anything and everything.

When the princess demands more space, what's a prince to do...but build a dining table that seats ten when she's not looking. I love my job! I like surprises even better. more>>

The Mission SideBoard Once again, no good deed goes unpunished. I get the usual " Honey, do you think you could build one of these?" She already knows the answer. So let it be written, so let it be done. Your wish is my command, I will build something that you want, but, I'm going to take artistic license when I can.. more>>
