GRACE'S PROJECTS

Things Made for Customers by Grace & Jim
Grace always likes a challenge. She is willing to take custom orders from her customers.
If something isn't already available, be sure to discuss the possibility of having something made to order. If Grace can't do it, or Jim can't do it, she will find someone who can.

Mrs. Lovett's Meat Pie Oven 2012 by Grace

Made this oven for Mrs. Lovett's Meat Pie shop, from the Todd Sweeny movie. It's supposed to look old and greasy. The doors and grates inside the baking compartment are a little rusted.

The baking compartment door opens. Below the fire chamber has a fire in it.

Below the back of the oven can be cut down if desired.

Emily's House
We had a customer who purchased a one inch scale salt box that she wanted to have renovated.  The customer wanted to install her own flooring so the house isn't ready to furnish yet, but basically, Jim had to take the complete house apart, sand and clean up all the parts. He had to replace a couple of pieces that were warped. This was a special house to this customer so she spared no expense on it. All the paneling is hand made, the fireplaces are all custom. One of the rooms was divided so that a "borning room" could be made. She wanted the house to look like it might have in the 1800's. Below are some "before" and after photos. Keep in mind that the floors aren't finished yet. Just imagine what this house will look like furnished! I hope to get some photos once it's completed. I just wish I'd had more than a few minutes to photograph some of the neat things included.
