New/Old Desk Niche

Custom built-in-place book storage behind antique cupboard doors with a desk built-in below. This is not casework as the space was already narrow, and the goal was to maximize the storage area. Going off of existing built-in furniture in this house, I anchored the bookshelves firmly to the studs and then added the frame, doors, and drawers around them. This project features a pair of antique salvage cabinet doors and a pair of lipped half-blind dovetailed drawers as part of the upper storage unit.The darker block of trim between the two drawers removes for a nifty secret hiding spot.
