Everything in its Place Outdoors: Custom Storage for Outdoor Living
Spring is coming (in some places more slowly than others). Now is a great time to turn your attention to the custom outdoors. Don’t forget that outdoor living has special storage requirements. Be sure to have a CustomMade artisan create the right custom outdoor equipment to store and secure the things you’ll need for you and your family to enjoy cookouts, days by the pool, or other outdoor activities.
Do you cook and entertain outdoors frequently? Perhaps you find yourself in the same position as the customer of Don Laporte Fine Woodworking who wanted built-in cabinetry that would blend in with the beauty of his outdoor stone kitchen area but still maximize the available storage space. “He could not find outdoor cabinetry with the appearance and quality that he was looking for commercially,” writes artisan Don Laporte, who custom built this Shaker-style outdoor kitchen cabinetry from naturally finished teak, which can withstand a variety of extreme outdoor conditions.
Perhaps you need your outdoor storage and work space to be mobile. Brent Allgood of Allgood Custom Woodworks can build hand crafted outdoor carts according to your design specifications and wood choices to complement your deck or patio.
Whether you’re relaxing by the pool or boating in a lake, CustomMade artisans can help you keep your drink of choice secure at all times. Michael Brown Chairmaker designed the mahogany “Comfy-rondack” Adirondack chair with a contoured seat, a lumbar curve in the backrest, and armrests lower at the back for maximum comfort. “But the most important part of the arm is level in the front to rest a cold drink,” writes Michael Brown.
If you’re kayaking, rafting, or just cruising along in your motorboat, you can strap down the hydrocaddy by Naked Aspen Designs nearly anywhere and keep your canned beverage with koozie and standard Nalgene bottle at hand and secure at all times. If this storage device is not strapped down and you wipe out, it will float! The hydrocaddy is made from plantation-grown sustainably harvested mahogany and finished with teak oil.
Whether your spring and summer outdoor activities involve rock steady stillness or graceful and vigorous motion, get the custom outdoor equipment you need from a CustomMade artisan near you to make sure all your bits and pieces stay in one place.
