Custom Built-in Furniture

Red Oak Built-in Furniture

This red oak built-in furniture came from a conversation about this slim nook, and a desire to match the antiques adjacent to it.

The red oak was stained with a gunstock and mahogany mixture.  It has a clear satin polyurethane finish that is both durable and invisible.  I built it in three sections, and then installed it with a couple extra trim pieces.  We cut the carpet and attached it securely to the floor and wall.  The next Seattle earthquake will only take it out if it takes the wall as well.

It is built into the corner in a way that the edges wrap to make it look more permanent or fixed.  The trim around the base is also meant to portray that stability.


Here is the animation proposal that we used to build it. This was a crucial part of communicating the project early on, as well as building it with extreme accuracy. Sketchup allows you to take measurements, and see the project from any angle, quickly.
