Custom built-in bookcasesCustom built-in bookcases

These bookcases are based on some I once saw in a medieval library, in Prague - bookcases that stretched from ground to ceiling, but with an extra-wide lower shelf that served as deep storage as well as seating. Those were plain white. These are red oak and Japanese ash, and feature a mix of custom and purchased moldings.   More

Coffee table/chestCoffee table/chest

A combination chest/coffee table built from red oak and finished with wrought-iron hardware, square-cut nails, and flaps stays to prevent lid-slam injury.   More


Hand-crafted bow sawHand-crafted bow saw
