This piece has gone into a 300 year old estate house. The design is Victorian inspired and always meant to be sympathetic to it’s surroundings. I tried to capture all that in a classic form without going over the top.
African Mahogany (sapele) and sapele veneered mdf, finished with Becker Acroma a/c satin lacquer.
I did a lot of new things on this and I’m happy with the way it turned out.
Ended up making it in my one car garage workshop, it wasn’t meant to be that way, that’s just how it turned out.
It’s 10’6” wide by 7’6” high so it was a bit of squeeze at times.
Burnt out the motor in my tablesaw at the half way point so had to rely on my baby bandsaw, tracksaw and a borrowed mitre/table saw combo to get it done.

Great work & craftsmanship, fantastic looking piece of furniture, especially since you had to work in the cramped quarters. I can sympathize with this condition, as I also need to do all my work in a one car garage, which makes your work all the more outstanding.

Agree with all the above posts. This is a special piece. I hope you made about 20 grand for it. You certainly deserve that. This is far from a weekend enthusiast bookshelf.
