I just used ten 1x2 hinges and put epoxy on each screw. To hold the door closed I embedded magnets in the edge of the door and face frame and it sucks into place perfectly. There will be coat hooks on the door to use as handles.

I had about 500 BF of aromatic cedar in my shop. Stunk up the place to high hell. Super pungent in that amount. I was so glad to get rid of it.

I love the smell for the first hour after not being around it for a while. Then I slowly start to hate it. But I'll always love the look.

Terrible pictures but here's something a little different. There's a peninsula
in the way of this top cabinet.


So, had to make it a little more accessible.

Wrapping up a backyard office for a therapist. Maple doors are a month behind schedule, but the rest is done! Includes a covered exterior area for their non-work use. Cedar shake siding was chosen to match the existing house.

Really nice work
What did you use to fasten the timber rafters to the ledger board? Looks really clean.

The timber rafters extent 3 feet or so and rest on the roof plane on a sleeper, with a big lag bolt for attachment. Something the architect specified. Instead of a ledger board, what you're seeing is just blocking.

Cleaner would've been to router in the wire for the pendants from above, but we didn't know they were part of the design until it was too late.

Finally finished the house wrap. We installed lead coated copper pans at all doors and windows. The home had some set backs, originally the homes roof system was trusses, things changed, it now has 4 floors, as the roof was framed to allow for a fourth floor, and an elevator, that has access to all four floors.
