It seems like I have been spending a lot of time on the Main Line recently. By no means is this a bad thing…it means word is spreading about my Handyman business, and word-of-mouth business is always the best type to have.
I recently completed a job for Alyssa in Penn Valley, PA which entailed custom building a completely framed cork board to display her children’s art work and providing a specifically sized piece of homasote for the desk area in her kitchen. She couldn’t find anything in any of the major retailers to suit her needs. I built a 36″w x 50″h grade A pine frame, installed the homasote to the rear of the frame – so none of the attachments were visable – and primed both cork boards so the homeowner could paint them with her color of choice. When I went back for the installation I cut holes into the homasote so the eletrical switches, outlet, phone jack and volume control were integrated into the front surface both cork boards.
Below is a picture of a the larger cork board:
