Techniques and Insights Behind the Art of Fine Woodworking



Macassar Ebony Vanity and 2 Custom Closets

This was a fun project for a wonderful couple in Los Altos. Our clients decided they wanted a vanity cabinet with some character so they chose Macassar Ebony with a clear finish for their Vanity cabinet with custom drawer dividers to make better use of the large drawers.

Pre-Finished Maple Cabinets

Many people are not aware that at Michael Meyer Fine Woodworking we offer 3 lines of cabinetry to suit any budget. We offer a Premium Line-any species, a Lower priced Custom Line and a Pre-Finished Line in Maple, Cherry or Walnut.

We just completed a project in Palo Alto for an Eichler owner who wanted a low cost alternative to maximize her storage space. The Project was to build a headboard storage cabinet, floor to ceiling wall unit with a pull-out laptop desk and lighting, as well as an entertainment center and a corner desk.

Seth is back with new design ideas

Our Cabinet Shop Manager, Seth Harpending, left us for two years while his wife completed her postdoctoral internship in Texas. While there he came up with a new design for cutting boards. The beauty of the design from a makers perspective is that they can be made with just three tools, a table saw, belt sander and finish sander.
