Rainy days like today are great for reflecting on past projects. Even the most ignored rooms of a home can be given new life with some hard work and dedication. In this bathroom, we were even able to salvage the bathtub and the sink so they could be used in other projects.
A more in depth look at the first curved coffered ceiling we’ve done. It was an interesting client request and we were definitely up for the challenge. (Swipe 👉🏻)
We framed the ceiling with 2x6 lumber screwed to the floor joists above, followed by lots of cripple studs cut to specific angles that we determined to be suitable for the curved look we were aiming for. We then used 1/4” MDF for the bottom face because it easily conformed to the angles of our framing. Using 1/2” MDF for the vertical sides; we cut pieces to full desired depth, dry fit them in place, used a 1/2” block to scribe a curved shadow line, cut the curves with a 20v @dewalt_ca jigsaw, sanded the curves thoroughly and finally proceeded to nail the pieces into place. One of my favourite aspects of this ceiling are the chamfered edged blocks we placed on each intersection.

When you have to make the same perfect cut 108 times - you buy the right tool. Also, dustless techonology - becoming very important. Already laws around it in the US and your silly not to think they are coming north of the border!
