I just discovered your beautiful work. I am in the process of choosing a new espresso machine and I am considering the Olympia Express Cremina. The Swiss build quality is terrific but the overall look as a bit too purpose driven. I do think, however, it would look stunning with your woodwork. Besides the handles do you make wood side paneling also? Have you ever worked on a Cremina? I would love to see some photos. Thanks.
Just FYI, you can search threads. Type Cremina into this box and your can see some examples of handles etc made for that machine. Not sure about side panels, but it's a place to start.

Thanks. I did that already. I would love to see Cremina's all decked out in wood. Not just the parts.

Problem is they are not my machines so I only see the completed machine if they post a picture. Have not made a case for a Cremina but probably could. However I would need the case off the machine as a pattern to reproduce it.

Here is one finished and there is another a couple pages back from this post.

Here are two Creminas with parts installed; the Bloodwood is my son's (formerly my) Cremina and Dave made Bloodwood steamvalve knob too but it is not installed in picture.

If you get wood side panels made, IIRC this would be a first; please post. But would temperature from boiler be problem?

Wow, the wood on that Niche Zero looks absolutely gorgeous... I may need to look into that. I've also replaced my Expobar you made handles for years ago... It may be time to get wood upgrades for my Duetto Evo...
