Custom Woodworking Project – Julington Creek
A couple in Julington Creek called Borders Woodworks 904.240.0465 for one of our free consultations about adding some custom woodworking for additional storage and functionality in their home.
Based on our discussion, we made some some rough sketches of the general design concepts. After taking necessary measurements in their home, we returned to our work shop in San Marco. In our shop, we began to design and build some bookshelves, a window seat, and an entertainment unit. We aim to create most of our custom woodworking projects in our shop, to minimize disruption to the home or business routines of our clients.
Our clients wanted open shelving in the top of their bookshelves, and cabinet doors on the bottom. In another room of their home, our clients wanted a window seat connecting two bookshelves. The window seat features deep drawer storage below. We built their bookshelves and window seat of solid poplar wood, for strength and durability. Our woodworking projects are sturdily made, with quality touches, like adding dovetail joints in the drawers. Then we painted them with white enamel.
For their entertainment center, we used some nicely grained, reclaimed walnut, and gave it a durable finish.
We installed the bookshelves, window seat, and entertainment unit in our clients’ home in about an hour and a half. Built-ins like these bookshelves and window seat are attached to the adjacent wall for safety. Intersections with adjacent, existing moldings (such as crown or floor) are blended for a seamless look.
Our clients were very pleased with their new built-in bookshelves and window seat, and the entertainment unit. Borders Woodworks likes to have happy clients!
