Finished A Big Breakfast Nook.





I framed everything with ply ripped with my track saw. I wanted a level of precision that dimensional lumber couldn't offer.




Room was about 13' wide so I had to splice the ply. I used west systems epoxy and some large dominoes. Clamped up the seat and back and used bessey clamps to push on the wall. Let it sit over night. Rock solid. Never skiing apart.




Glued on nosing. Clamps and kreg screws.

Miter time. Thank goodness for track saws. More dominoes and west systems epoxy. Let it dry overnight again. The RO 125 makes quick work of sanding the epoxy.



Made panels. Rabbeting bit. Glued and stapled the panels. Clipping the panel corners at a 45 on the miter saw makes them fit.



Framed the backrest. More ply and kreg screws.

Scribed ply for the cap to the wall. Then I marked it. Ripped at 10 degrees with track saw.

Ripped down some 4/4 to 1/4" for banding. Glued and pinned. Used rotex to sand it down. Didn't want to risk tear out with the router.

Nice. Beats what I'm doing.
How level were those windows installed that you had to run the cap to?

Re: Finished A Big Breakfast Nook.


that is some pretty work. Question, when you designed this, did you give consideration to the foot space behind the seat area? Its just me personally, I like a little bit more foot space behind it.

And that is one huge nook. In NYC, we would probably engineer at least some storage space in those.

Nice site work Spencer.

They didn't ask for drawers under there?

Nice Spence. I got so close to getting a job like this and at last second they decided not to. Looks like a fun project.

Really close. Within a strong sixteenth.

Almost forgot. One of the most important tools was the pls 180. Screwed a 2x4 to my table and used my micro adjusting bracket thing. Makes getting level dialed in easy.

Looks very nice...

I take it they didn't want to utilize the storage capacity correct?

They didn't want to do anything with storage. I would have doubled my price if they would have. I feel it would have greatly increased the time involved, maybe better than doubled it.

The way it works is the HO gives me a picture of the look they want with a pic off of houzz or something and I build it.

The house is pushing 9,000 sq ft. There is plenty of space to put stuff.

I had to build off the dimensions of the table that is being built. That's why the ledge is so big. The table is going to be pretty sweet. 3-1/2" thick oak I think.
