Construction
Shelves are held in place by dado joints and secured with screws. Edge banding and face-frames are glued and clamped by hand. The bottom of freestanding bookcases are shaved so that the bookcase leans back ever-so-slightly. Bookcases can also be affixed to the wall during delivery.

Finishing
We're proud to finish all of our work by hand. Our default finish on cherry, maple, oak, or walnut is three coats of Danish oil and one coat of wax. Our pine bookcases are unfinished by default. We can also stain our bookcases a variety of colors, match existing stains, and paint. 

Materials
We work in a variety of domestic hardwoods, including cherry, maple, oak and walnut. We also work in pine. Our hardwood bookcases are crafted from a combination of solid lumber and high-grade plywood veneer; our pine cases from solid Western Ponderosa pine. The backs of our bookcases are unfinished by default. A finished back must be specifically requested.
