to suit their room. "The CNC allows us to match the wood grain perfectly, and makes better use of the materials." With Karl and Celia, he was able to calculate in advance the exact number of sheets of walnut and maple required for their bed, and demonstrate the grain pattern to be achieved. The end result is a very attractive and unusual bed that complements the house. As I mentioned, the custom woodwork in the house was outstanding, and was the work of Brett Chamberlain of B. Chamberlain Fine Woodworking. "His attention to detail was remarkable," Karl says. Throughout the house there are tasteful examples of his work, from shaped wood pillars, to artistic touches to the staircase, and to the doors and cupboards. I was also impressed with the dynamic stonework in the house, and in particular the imposing stone wall surrounding the woodstove. This is the creation of Brian Stacey, a sub-contractor for Trevor Wilson of Wilco Construction. "He is responsible for all the stonework including the outside walls of the house," says Mary Ellen Henderson, the project coordinator. "He was one of the many gifted artisans who worked on this exciting project."
