We were asked if we could build a curved reception counter for Bluenose Auto Services.
Al Cameron is from Nova Scotia and has become a very successful business man here in the Parksville area.
Sean and I started framing the desk with a table saw, skill saw, jig saw, chop saw and belt sander.
All the basic framing is done and we are installing the exterior thin door skins to the outside.
Door skins are on and also the 3/4″ plywood top to stop the counter from moving.
Months later we are in our new shop and asked if we would take the desk out of storage and finish it
My buddy Vincent had some really cool vinyl flooring in his inventory so we decided to introduce it to Al
EVERYONE loved it – looks like a cool rusty checker plate
Gluing the back of each piece after Sean roughed it with the belt sander
Another layer of glue on the desk
Each tile has been installed but because it is in a curve we had to find a way to keep pressure on the joints
Flat bar steel was placed over every joint, the frame braced and the straps tightened
This is how it turned out on the curve with the counter top
top section done
Starting the bank of drawers with some beautiful spalted maple
Sean made custom TEAK handles

The reception desk installed
The reception desk is now finished
