Rustic Cabinet Doors
Building Rustic Looking Cabinet Doors . . . on a Budget
I was recently contacted through my website ConcordCarpenter.com, with an email that started something like this, “Can you make me rustic looking cabinet doors quickly, cheaply but built real well?”
Fishing, Shipping, a Love Story and of course Beer!
While I would normally run away from a project request like this, I was drawn in by this man’s story. He and his wife had recently purchased their dream house in Newburyport, MA.
Newburyport has a long and rich history. Located on the southern bank of the Merrimack River where it empties into the Atlantic Ocean. Originally the area was inhabited by the Pawtucket Indians and later became a city in 1851. It was once a big fishing port, shipbuilding and shipping center, and was known for silverware manufacture. It’s also the location of NBPT Brewing Company one of my favorite “beaaah” makers! [Said with a strong Boston Accent]
According to my new client, his wife took ill and passed away. He really wanted to follow through and finish the project, according to her original plan. Every time he spoke about her or the project his eyes would well with tears. How could I say no?
