Again we designed and proposed an installation project in Google's Sketchup 3D modeling program.  This allowed the client to see precisely what we proposed to offer.  The result was a project without surprises.  Expectations were met, everyone is happy.

The project is oak veneer panels 113" tall applied to the sides of drywalled niches each side of the fireplace.  The outer corners are oak solids and return the corner.  Shelves were also oak veneer with solid oak edging.   The dye color was pre-approved by the client and matches other decor in the room.  Custom shelf pins were made by us for the front supports, rear pins are hidden in recesses in the shelves.

This shelving in a home office was in need of support and improved appearance. We applied the owners material (Sassafras) to the front edges and added support at two intermediate locations. Subsequently we added dividers and interior end caps.

This is an "add on" project. My customer found some stainless steel swivel stools that matched his decor but he wanted arms and they weren't availble from the chair maker. The seat is maple and we made arms to match and cut two inches off the legs to achieve desired height. We can make modification to furniture to make it do what you want too. Bring us your issues.

This is a remodel of an owners piece. This maple chest was being used as a side board or server at a vacation home. The owners wished that the piece had greater top area and asked if leaves could be added to each end. We made maple leaves and supports for each end. Additionally we tighted the case, refitted the doors and spray painted the piece black.
