Custom Cabinet and Bookcases project in Riverside
Almost a year ago, Borders Woodworks 904-240-0465 designed, built and installed a custom kitchen and three custom vanities in a beautifully restored home in the Riverside neighborhood of Jacksonville, Florida as part of a remodeling project with our friends at Whyrick Builders.
We were happy to hear from the homeowners again when they called on us recently to add a custom laundry cabinet and build new bookcases for their study.
The laundry cabinet was a tight squeeze, but we managed to build in plenty of usable storage space in the limited area.
For the bookcases in the study, we decided to use alder with contrasting stain colors to complement the elegant, original hardwood floors.
- One challenge was to add the cabinets without covering the floor, which features an inlaid pattern in the wood flooring, around the perimeter of the room.
- The other requirement was that the bookcases needed to frame a piece of artwork (not shown in photos) the clients wished to feature in the room.
Both challenges were met and hopefully we will be called back for future projects in this home which features some of our most unique woodwork.
