Teak Pass-through Buffet

October 20, 2008 · Print This Article

This beautiful Berkeley hills home was built at the turn of the century by Maybeck’s brother-in-law. The owners were a fantastic designer builder team. Working with them for over 15 years on numerous projects they called me to do all of their finish work. They knew exactly what they wanted for this teak pass-through however, the designer and I developed the idea for these beautiful brackets that hold up the buffet.

From the opposite side you can see the douglas fir cabinet built on site that serves as the support for the pass-through.

I also had great opportunity to make some furniture that enhanced the functionality of their home with simple elegance.

This tansu table helped to stream line the entrance way of this communal home. The Japanese style fits in well with the craftsman architecture.

The breakfast nook was enhanced by this carefully crafted table support that mirrors details found in other parts of the house.

I covered this refrigerator with a vertical grain douglas fir overlay when the owner expressed dissatisfaction with the look and feel of the stainless steel appliance.
