Office Piece: Grafton, WI

April, 2008

Here's something we put together for our office.

This is the corner where we keep various stain, tile and trim samples. Although the stand rotates for easy access, it could look nicer.

This is the piece we will be working on. The new office piece will be made out of maple, and will fit in the corner perfectly.
Here's the schematic drawing. We have decided to go with a beaded detail on the face frame.
