It's really nice when another solid word-of-mouth job comes in:
Mary had seen me when I was a guest artist on a studio tour a couple years back, kept my card, and when she started talking to her interior designer (Susan Brown in Guelph Ontario), she basically said: "I met this guy and I'd like him to make this bookcase / TV unit...". So I got the call from Susan, received some quick sketches, and from that, I was able to quote for the project.
It's a great solution actually: "Now it's a bookcase, now we're watching TV!" The shaker style doors slide side-to-side to make the quick transformation possible. Also, the flat screen is mounted on a nice chunk of hardware that allows easy positioning.
And, since the piece acts as a room divider, it's finished on the back with the same style of shaker panels.
The top is 11 feet of solid maple, the cabinets are white lacquered MDF with maple shelves. The Oxford white lacquer has a final clear coat to give it a refined furniture finish.
Instead of getting "factory doors" made, I left them to the end so that I could get simple exact sizes and so everything would line up bang on. It paid off.
