“Doors to my desk- progress”

 

Description from Mommykat Bubbly Chick: A month or so ago my husband began work on my new beading desk & storage unit. The Shelves & folding desk have been finished, and now hubby is working on the doors. Doors will have additional storage shelves, and be hung on piano hinges to fold out.

    D, I am spoiled & impatient! I cant wait till it is all together to fill it!

    it will live in the kitchen, where I like to bead while doing other things, like while helping kids w/ homework or cooking dinner.

    Lucky Lorrie!!! This is really coming along nicely – and you did a beautiful pick to show off the cherry wood! (It’s my favorite wood) Those ASP stick pearls look great with the Muscovite!

    Sigh……I think we should change your name to “Lucky Chicky”! What a fabulous cabinet and what a terrific hubby you have, Lorrie! Great pick to show us your “work in progress” — can’t wait to see the finished cabinet! Of course, you’re probably more eager than any of us…..LOL

    Joyce is right — He could earn a small fortune building these, just for the Chicks!!! ;)

    This wonderful piece of furniture is amazing. You all have done your homework and he has measured 3 times and once more for good measure. Tell your hubby he did good. He is a keeper and so is your bead cupboard/with desk. Congrats to both of you for putting your heads together to make a splendid piece of gorgeous furniture.

    The pick is very pretty and lucky you with the desk :) My husband promised one to me but …promises…

    I wanted to have it in our master bedroom’s walking closet, which is big enough to house it for me beside being a closet…

    I really am a Lucky Chicky!
    LOL, It is so cool that I am going to have my very own space. My husband & I do not have lots of space…when we bought our home, a 4 bedroom cape cod was the perfect size for he & I and our two children…. but then I was guided into foster care for our special needs children, and with 7 of us, the house is much smaller! So it will be amazing to have a space of my own to work!

    This is a pick of the raised panel cherry doors he created. the dark wood between the two panels is cocobello, a heavy exotic wood

    I was just wondering about this desk, Lorrie. I’m so glad you updated us.
    It really is gorgeous – Eric is so talented!

    lovely pink beads too!

    Oh Lorrie, I’m so happy for you. This is beautiful. You have a great husband. But then, he has a great wife too. You are very deserving of it for everything you do for everyone else. Does he do these things as a hobby or is it is career? I think he should become a chicky on the site and we can all sweet talk him into building for all of us.

    This is just a hobby for him. He is a clinical pshychologist for disabled children as a job title.

    He made our captains bed, and a beautiful dresser for Rhi. Also he will be making Doors for the kitchen cabinets as one of his next projects.

    Linda, I bought him the Table Saw for Christmas, and my new desk is my reward! :D

    OOOo he needs a router for finishing does he have that. Makes wonderful finishes on the edge of doors and on door insets etc. My husband had all that in Ohio left it. It’s a long story. Decided to move us a month earlier and I did it in less than a week 25 yrs same home. He didn’t want to go back for stuff left for the kids. Now buying same only better tools all over. I knew there would be a reason someday pop up.
