Clients sent me a photo of how they used the rustic walnut island top we built them. This is a house they flipped themselves that was on land they bought and did a great job! We love seeing how people use our pieces. #callumeastdesign
I got a little bit of time to experiment with my herringbone patterned wood wall for my dream closet today. A little bit about the wood wall:
- I decided to use 1/4" maple plywood as my "tiles" mainly because as you can see in pic #2, I have a TON of scrap that I'd love to rid myself of...plus it will cut and paint well and cost me nothing! Yay! - Each tile will be 2"x6" and each tile must be cut identical and perfect or it starts getting gappy. And nobody likes gappy wood walls 😉.
- it will not be a rustic wood wall. This will be crisp, clean, modern, and hopefully the tiles will fit very tightly together. It will be painted white.
- I've done this pattern on doors and tabletops before, so just a tip if you want to try this, instead of cutting out each tile individually (and I know it's tempting) and then beveling each side, cut in long runs to the exact length and then bevel all the end grain at once before returning to the tablesaw to cut to final widths and then back to the router to bevel the long sides. See the 3rd pic. Just so much easier and safer and a more consistent cut rather than trying to cut a bevel on a 2" side. Hopefully that makes sense. Maybe I'll do a video.
Anyway, I'm so super pumped about this next phase of the closet!!
