this is a project that took up most of last summer. it was a hallway to an addition that acts like an entryway to the new space . it features walnut frames with maple inlays maple square inlay ,maple panels with solid walnut aplaques in an asian design. the mirror was made from a pair of wardrobe doors that we made it look like an entry the book shelves are walnut wraped over the 2×6 wall studs with quater inch walnut plywood then faced with solid walnut with square and stripe inlays . it is finished with waterlox sealer then a microtopic polyurathane gel (petrie) . there were more than 1500 shelf pin holes i still have to make the doors and the top moulding and the base board just wait to see how we tackle the main addition ,more to come – michaeljon

Great looking project. I like the details. What is the maning of the red, green, yellow and orange colors mean? Very nice!

That is amazing. What a lot of craftmanship. Very beautiful. If it were mine and I had to move, I’d have to take it with me.

Looks great. All walls are going to be covered with wood…
I like the squares on 5th pic.
What is the blue/green square on 5th pic?
