Here’s my 45 jig I use for cutting angles lower than 45 degrees on the panel saw. The piece to be cut is clamped on and pushed through against the rip fence. The other two mitres were cut on the sliding bed side, I have another jig I use to ensure they’re cut straight, which makes light work when glueing up. Also, Autocad and a digital angle finder does away with all the head scratching, when trying to set the blade to the correct position #nathanberrydesign #devon #exeter #carpentry #carpentrylife #workshop #powertools #diy #homeimprovement #handmade #mdf #tools #panelsaw #wood #woodwork

It’s always nice to see something other than white! We’ve done some fantastic jobs with darker colours. Many of our customers settle on either F&B or Little Green colours, of course what goes through the gun will be mixed to match. Sheen wise, most customers ask for Matt, but I always try to push for 40% sheen, it’s a good middle of the road option #nathanberrydesign #devon #exeter #paint #mymorrells #carpentry #carpentrylife #cabinets #cabinetmaking #bespoke #interordesign #interiors #spraying #wood #woodwork #diy #homeimprovement #handmade #bespoke #moderncraftsman

This is how I go about putting the logo on my drawer sides, by using a branding iron mounted in a pillar drill. This method works great for branding lots of identical pieces, as a stop is easy to set up and repeat branding is quick and simple. For anyone looking to do the same, I would highly recommend contacting Philip at @cranforddesignworks #cdwgiveaway #nathanberrydesign #exeter #devon #carpentry #carpentrylife #cabinets #cabinetmaker #workshop #powertools #diy #branding #homeimprovement #wood #woodworking #fittedfurniture #handmade #bespoke

Most of the morning was spent machining up the parts for these shaker doors. They are for an integrated fridge/freezer, so instead of 6mm, my centre panel is 12mm with a rebate to give the back a flat back for attaching to the appliance door #nathanberrydesign #exeter #devon #carpentry #carpentrylife #cabinets #kitchens #fittedfurniture #cabinetmaker #shaker #wood #woodwork #workshop #diy #homeimprovement #moderncraftsman

Day of machining up for a double integrated fridge housing. These four timbers will make a pair of posts, in the morning I’ll push them back through the thicknesser #nathanberrydesign #devon #exeter #carpentry #carpentrylife #cabinets #cabinetmaker #workshop #wood #woodwork #diy #homeimprovement #fittedfurniture #kitchens #handmade #bespoke #interiordesign #moderncraftsman

Pictures of the second wardrobe recently made for @designdliving This unit is made up from three sections, wardrobe, shelving unit and a desk/work area. The work area has been fitted with pivoting pocket gear, allowing the customer to shut the desk away when not needed without the doors getting in the way when in use. Cabinets were made in my Exeter workshop and delivered to Poole for install, spraying by @danedwards306 #nathanberrydesign #exeter #devon #carpentry #carpentrylife #cabinets #cabinetmaker #cabinetmaking #wardrobe #fittedwardrobes #handmade #bespoke #sandbanks #dorset #wood #woodworking #fittedfurniture

This morning we installed the shop counter I have been working on this week. The counter was fitted for Mid Devon Tyres here in Exeter as part of a refit of their customer waiting area. The counter was constructed from grey melamine cabinets with black laminate worktop/end panels, and sprayed fronts by @danedwards306 All manufactured offsite and installed within half a day #nathanberrydesign #exeter #devon #carpentry #carpentrylife #cabinets #cabinetmaker #cabinetmaking #bespoke #handmade #diy #homeimprovement #fittedfurniture #shopcounter #madetomeasure #moderncraftsman #workshop #wood #woodworking #woodwork

Shaped, laminated and edged up the worktop for the shop counter today. Instead of three sections connected by joints at 45 degrees, I cut the worktop shape from a sheet of 6mm, glued the sheet to an 18mm, then used contact adhesive to stick a sheet of black laminate to the top, finished with 2mm edging. On the underside, I glued a balancer, this stops the counter from drawing in moisture and twisting later down the line -standard practice when working with laminates. With the edging, I shaped the corners so that I could complete the edge in one pass on the outside and inside edges, then it was a case of two small sections on each end #nathanberrydesign #exeter #devon #carpentry #carpentrylife #cabinets #cabinetmaker #shopcounter #handmade #workshop #wood #woodwork #bespoke #diy #homeimprovement #keepcraftalive #moderncraftsman

My shop counter cabinets are nearly complete, I have the front side to sort out tomorrow and then shape a worktop. Last job of the day was to fit the black melamine plinths to 100mm legs. Despite the angles, this was quite a simple operation, the middle plinth was cut to length and the side plinths were cut at a 45 degree angle which sat over the top of the middle plinth, these were then cut to size - no messing around trying to cut internal mitres! #nathanberrydesign #exeter #devon #carpentry #carpentrylife #cabinets #cabinetmaker #workshop #diy #homeimprovement #shopcounter #wood #woodwork #bespoke #handmade #mdf

I regularly use shelf pins in my cabinets, I’ll always set them out so that the gaps between shelves are evenly spaced, chances are that the client will keep them this way, but the option is there to remove or adjust the shelving if needed #nathanberrydesign #exeter #devon #carpentry #carpentrylife #cabinets #cabinetmaking #fittedfurniture #shelving #diy #homeimprovement #keepcraftalive #bespoke #handmade #wood #woodworking #moderncraftsman

More progress on the counter. I managed to fit the backing boards, shelving pins and glue the drawer together, might have a day off tomorrow, ready to hit the ground running on Tuesday! #nathanberrydesign #exeter #devon #carpentry #carpentrylife #cabinets #cabinetmaker #workshop #wood #woodwork #shopcounter #fittedfurniture #diy #homeimprovement #bespoke #handmade

Bare bones of of a shop counter assembled. This is being installed next Saturday, I can sense some late nights at the workshop this week. There will be a Matt black laminate worktop and sprayed front. Other than a drawer, the back is open shelving, so no fronts on this job. #nathanberrydesign #exeter #devon #shop #counter #cabinets #carpenter #carpentrylife #work #workshop #diy #homeimprovement #fittedfurniture #bespoke #handmade #shopcounter

Next project in the workshop is a shop counter for a local client. I only have a single drawer to make, which I decided to construct from birch ply with a grey melamine base board, two materials I happened to have in the offcuts rack #nathanberrydesign #exeter #devon #carpentry #carpentrylife #cabinets #workshop #ply #drawers #diy #homeimprovement #wood #woodwork #fittedfurniture #moderncraftsman

Another install complete for @designdliving in Bournemouth. Wardrobe with sprayed fronts, Tip-on (push to open) doors and drawer runners. All the cabinets have been made from grey melamine and drawers constructed from oak veneer. Wardrobe was handmade in my Exeter based workshop and then delivered to site for install, which took a day to complete #nathanberrydesign #exeter #devon #carpentry #carpentrylife #cabinets #cabinetmaker #wardrobe #fittedwardrobe #fittedfurniture #bournemouth #diy #homeimprovement #drawers #oak #wood #woodwork #woodworking

This completed desktop will be fitted this week as part of our wardrobe install. The keyboard drawer is fixed to Movento base mounted runners. The countertop is veneer board with 2mm edging, however I went with a solid front, it just made more sense than messing around with edging. The whole thing has been sprayed/lacquered and a couple of cable ports fitted #nathanberrydesign #devon #exeter #carpentry #carpentrylife #cabinets #cabinetmaker #diy #homeimprovement #wood #workshop #woodworking #oak #wardrobe

A length of threaded bar let into the underside of this 18mm top, will help stiffen it up. I’ve done his before with thicker shelving, doubling up on boards and hiding a bar through the middle, works well #nathanberrydesign #exeter #devon #carpentry #carpentrylife #cabinets #cabinetmaker #workshop #wood #woodwork #diy #homeimprovement #handmade #fittedwardrobes #wardrobe

Here are a pair of base mounted Blum Movento runners being used for a pullout keyboard drawer. They are basically identical to the regular version, but without the side section. My tray is made from 16mm oak veneer MDF, which I have mitred and added a lip at the rear #nathanberrydesign #exeter #devon #carpentry #carpentrylife #cabinets #cabinetmaker #diy #drawer #blum #homeimprovement #wood #woodwork #workshop
