This week I wanted to share some pictures and talk about a custom bookcase that I recently completed for a customer in New Jersey.
It included a number of custom features such as beveled glass on the upper case which shows the beautiful solid tiger maple back. The doors are also locking. We wanted a streamlined look with this piece, so rather than using knobs, the key to the lock is the actual knob. Another custom feature on this piece was to hide the butt hinges by using overlay doors.
The shelves in both the upper and lower case are fully adjustable. Next week I will blog about how I make these fully adjustable solid wood shelves.
It was a great project! I always enjoy working with people to mesh their ideas with period features to build both practical and beautiful pieces of furniture. If you have a project in mind, I would enjoy hearing from you.
Until next week,
