I converted a bedroom in to an office several years ago when completing the home addition. I built all the cabinetry from knotty pine. The fluted shelving columns of the book cases have a chase running up through the middle to run the wiring for some sconces to the window seat area. The window seat has ample storage beneath. And the coved crown molding was cut on the table saw and router table. Working the 1X stock across the table saw blade diagonally created the cove and it was my first attempt and I was quite pleased wit the result. I used a piece of scrap cherry crown molding to copy and in the end it matched exactly! All the panels are all solid pine and I haven’t had any issues with severe wood movement since they were built….and it’s been over 15 years now.

This is amazing! especially the crown. I really need to try that method. How many passes did you need to make?

@ Joe, It’s been so long now I don’t remember how many passes it took. I made these on a contractor style table saw before I had a dust collection system and the pile of sawdust beneath my saw was as high as the base of the saw housing. Each piece just starts out as a piece of 1X stock (3/4 inch thick). You do have to make several light passes until you achieve the desired profile.

@ Eddie, yes. The remaining 2 walls all have raised panel wainscotting that I didn’t include pics of. About a 15 ft run in total. The bench seat has a raised panel back and front base.

Thanks for the nice comments all.
