Cabinet with glass doors and drawer. Shelfs are glass framed with Cherry and keyed miter joints where key is Brazilian Cherry.
Bookcases made of American Cherry and designed to be stacked, arranged side-by-side, or arranged separately. Greene and Greene accents with custom designed pulls made of Brazilian Cherry and dyed black to appear ebonized. There are secret compartments, invisible locking for the glass doors and accent LED lighting.
Companion bookcase with secret compartment. Either case may be stacked on top of the other.
Details of dovetail and mortise/tenon joinery exposed (by design), Greene and Greene plug accents, and the arch which accommodates the requirement to stack cases if client desires.
Detail photo of custom door pulls, make of Brazilian Cherry and dyed black to mimic ebony.
Bow tie inlays that were born out of a crack that developed after panel glue up. These inlays are placed over the crack attempting to reinforce and prevent further migration of the crack. I like this because it's an example of details and enhancements that can result from defects or errors.
