Formal Study and Library

The formal library and study is nestled between the formal parlor and butler barbecue deck kitchen. The hand made stained glass ceiling is a one of a kind award wining creation, which provides an atmosphere of serenity to read or study.

It took me over 1000 hours to design, build and install the ceiling.

The creation of this ceiling and other woodworking projects that incorporates stain glass will be featured in an up coming blog.

I love this room too of course. The open Bible is special for sure.

somehow, with all that detail, there was no “crack” involved…nice work.
