RUSTIKT KÖK

 

Bertazzoni

We’ve used this Bertazzoni cooker in a few projects, and are honored that Bertazzoni reached out to us to use this chef’s style kitchen as a design inspiration on their website.

Designed by Adam Rosengren and Chris Vanklei, this chef’s kitchen features a 70cm wide commercial grade gas Bertazzoni stove from the Master series, custom-built cabinets, poured concrete countertops, and shelves made from reclaimed barn wood.

electronic HOUSE Award Winning Theater

 

Home Theater $75K-$150K Silver Winner

The goal for this award-winning theater was to create a space that was truly unique and custom by design.  This theater includes state-of-the-art audio/visual equipment, glowing pillars with glass-beaded panels, and a giant oval with built-in lighting in the ceiling.  It was a great experience collaborating with Admit One Cinema and interior designer Annie Tropple on this project.

Dresser w/ Hidden Drawer

Dresser with Hidden Drawer

This is a short little pitch video I put together for one of the editors at Fine Woodworking. The beginning part of the video was filmed on the iPhone about a month ago, but the furniture spin at the end is from 2010.  The wood lock was something I saw on Matthias Wandel’s website.  I thought it would be fun to incorporate it into a piece of furniture and have it control a hidden drawer.  The video below shows what I came up with.

Showing Mike Prom this dresser is what got us talking about how we were going to take the hidden drawer concept to the next level.  That evening we started sketching the custom bookcase and its elaborate hidden drawer mechanism.

Theater is complete. Time to get down!

Home Theater Install

I’m so excited about this project, I’m going to throw a huge party!

Working with Admit One Cinema and designer Annie Tropple was a really great experience.  This kind of work is what I live for.  The custom millwork on the walls is amazing.  It’s filled with glass beads and LED lights.  Quite simply, it’s off the hook.  We’ll be photographing the finished product soon, more stills and video to come!

Giant Oval Molding w/ Built-in LED lighting

Home theater project

Last year I had the opportunity to do some specialty woodworking involving curved crown molding for an award winning in home theater by Admit One Cinema, and Twin Cities designer Annie Tropple.

Currently, we are working on a similar theater that is going to be equally awesome.  This time I’m doing all the woodwork, including a giant oval ceiling molding that’s going to have built-in LED lighting.

The oval molding measures roughly 11′ X 17′. The LEDs will give off a soft blue glow to the interior of the oval ceiling, which is designed to look like stars.

The oval parts were drafted in AutoCAD Inventor by my pal Mike Prom, and were cut out of 1″ MDF using a CNC router.  Mike also helped me out with a uber complicated hidden drawer mechanism that I built into a custom bookcase in 2010.

I’m really jazzed to be a part of this project, it’s going to be rad.  I’m looking forward to filming the final product with my buddy Joshua VP when it’s totally completed.

Arts & Crafts Vanity

Arts & Crafts Vanity

Same style, smaller size.

Last spring I built an Arts & Crafts style vanity and linen cabinet for BJ Larson Remodeling.  Those cabinets were for a master bathroom remodel; this vanity is going in the same house’s main floor bathroom.  See the original cabinets.

Arts and Crafts Vanity

Arts and Crafts style vanity and linen cabinet

This is a small project I worked on for a bathroom remodel with BJ Larson Remodeling. I’ve never been a huge fan of this style of woodwork, but I really dig the way it turned out. The vanity and linen cabinet are made out of quarter sawn red oak. I’m not doing the finish work on this job, but if I did, I would use a gel stain top coated with amber shellac. I’ve used that finish before on this style of woodwork and it looks really sharp.

I filmed a time-lapse of myself installing the drawer boxes and drawer fronts and included it in my Spring 2011 “test footage” demo reel. If you look carefully, you’ll notice that I accidentally bumped the tracks when I was filming the time-lapse. I did a lot of work in post production trying to smooth it out but was unable to do so. My solution was to edit the “bump” to be on beat with the song. If you are a fan of the TV show Dexter, you might notice in the intro to the show they do the same thing with one of there macro shots. I wonder it it was intentional or an accident. Either way, I think Dexter’s intro is brilliant.
