Laundry + Craft Room

Custom Laundry and Craft Room

This is not your typical laundry room. With two workspaces you can fold and press, or cut and wrap with ease. This space works when your feeling crafty or simply taking care of life’s mundane tasks.

With custom shelving for wrapping paper and ribbon, and plenty of butch block countertop surface, this dual-purpose room is both efficient and spacious.

Coffee Table

This book-matched slab walnut coffee table was inspired by the idea that custom furniture can be created to match custom cabinetry.

Pink Changing Table

My wife and I recently had a happy and healthy baby girl. Naturally, I used the opportunity to craft a changing table for the nursery.

Nightstand with Hidden Drawer

Innovation is a common theme at Designed and Made. The goal of this project was to take a common household item — in this case a nightstand — and incorporate custom features that make the furniture piece unique, and truly custom.

This nightstand with a hidden drawer features burl veneer inlays behind a CNC-machined walnut face with gold leaf trim that accentuates the detail.

“Mike Prom and I were able to build on the knowledge we gained on the original hidden drawer project to create a simpler hidden drawer mechanism with less parts that is easier to build,” said Brian Grabski.

The nightstand features:

  • CNC-machined walnut face
  • Burl veneer inlays
  • Gold leaf details on the trim

Built into the nightstand is a hidden drawer. To access the drawer, you pull on a lever hidden behind the frame of the top drawer. This activates a spring which pushes the hidden drawer out. The beauty of the spring is threefold; it’s inexpensive and readily available, it can easily be replaced, and the tension keeps the hidden drawer closed until it’s activated.
