This Formal Cherry Library was built to look like it was 100 years old, except there is room for a flat screen TV. For reference, I used turn of the century woodworking texts. This was built in my shop in three large modules and then installed and finished in the owner's home, leaving the remaining wall , with the desk and file cabinet to be built in place. There is a disguised cabinet built into the corner to hold paper, and office supplies. Case backs are traditional frame and panel construction with pinned mortise and tenon joints. The face frames also have pinned mortise and tenon joints. All the moldings are custom to this piece, I had several different cutters made to my specifications. The carvings are the faces of my client's sons, which were done by Paul Deans of New Zealand

Dimensions: 24ft. X 10 ft. X 20" D
