This a bookcase made of solid Walnut and Walnut veneer. Custom was the understatement here.
The client has great taste and wanted something unique for their great room.
When we first saw the drawings we did not know how we were going to make the solid dome in the top section.
We have done many curved valances and curved crown mldg’s before, but the dome was never attempted.
It was actually truly enjoyable to figure out and put together, it required 4 men and a cable lift jack to hoist the one pc dome and upper valance on the top of the bookcase. Probably about 250lbs by itself.
Don’t know if we will ever get to make another one like it???
