Sometimes you just don’t have room for a pair of balanced bookcases. This project only had one. The bookcase had some changes from my normal design. First you’ll notice that it is deeper then the bed. Normally my bookcases are flush or set back a few inches. This customer wanted a standard depth bed and want a wardrobe in the bookcase. This is the first time I’ve done this, and I think I like it. The second thing that is different is a couple drawers above the drink tray. Normally with a wardrobe, I leave an open space above the tray.

This is a Contempo style and it was completed in June 2011

This is going in a condo in North Carolina call A Pirates Life. Check it out you may get a chance to sleep in one of my beds.

Looks like a lot of work. Great design and nice finish.
