I recently built some shaker style radiator covers for a customer in South Portland. The covers were constructed using birch plywood and poplar. We used SketchUp to design the covers and finalize the look before any building took place. One of the covers was made for a child’s room and has built in storage.
This project began as a hand drawn sketch a customer gave me. With his input, I created many revisions in SketchUp to which we added a lot of unique features – low voltage LED disc lights, concealed lighting under the countertop, hidden fasteners in the decking, and a custom milled two piece riser. The framing is constructed from pressure treated southern yellow pine. The decking, rail, posts and trim is Cumaru from Bozovich Timber Products.
