bookmark_borderBathroom with a view

We have had a klipper alongside CAS these last weeks for a new bathroom and cupboards. The bathroom is finished in ivory 2 part paint with mahogany and Oregon pine trim. The cupboards are beech plywood, the floor and trim here is oak.

Friday in miserable weather the klipper set off home to Amsterdam.

De laatste weken is deze stoere klipper bij ons in de Zweedse haven langszij voor een epoxy badkamer en kledingkasten.

Nu met winterse tegenwind en buien op terugreis naar Amsterdam.

Walnut table
Oak table parts

We have a parallel production of two tables underway in the shop aboard CAS at the moment.

First a large walnut table top to a client’s design, that will sit on a stainless steel frame that he is building himself. Lovely dark walnut, with the knots filled with epoxy, to be primed with injection epoxy and spray-painted with a soft silky transparent two-pack finish to bring out the deep colours of the wood.

As the other end of the spectrum, and the other end of the shop, a white oak table following a 1970’s design by Richard LaTrobe Bateman, inspired by monastery furniture. All angled mortise and tenon joints, bridle-jointed bearers and buttons, then finished with Skylt to look as close as possible to unfinished oak while protecting the light coloured wood.
