that was salvaged from the Big Sur Fires back in 2009

The Project was to create a Large Island Cabinet to match the rest of the kitchen cabinetry

and add an additional 4 foot x 8 foot Walnut Butcher Block work space to the kitchen.


The client requested a large eating area with plenty of knee space on the Backside


We also added custom Drawer Dividers for Utensils & Spices

This year we decided to celebrate Veterans Day with a little bit of fun and some old fashioned elbow grease.

After our weekly safety meeting and some hot coffee, the entire company got together to sweep up some saw dust, fix the tools in need of repair and discussed the finer points of a good chip shot.

We were also able to test our skills behind some beautiful old wooden bows after a nice catered lunch.

While most of us were not the marksman that we claimed to be, we did successfully manage to keep all our stray arrows within our confined safety area.

We are remodeling a home in an older Palo Alto neighborhood and our clients asked us to either build them a new garage or repair the existing one. The old garage was in bad shape. It was falling down and the front was leaning over to one side by 4″.  It looked like it was salvageable, the roofing was passable and the framing was beautiful old growth rough sawn fir, full dimension lumber that is no longer available these days, if it were you would use it to build something beautiful, not a garage!

It’s actually very simple, just requires the following parts:
