Entertainment center with hidden TV
This is a bookcase with a hidden entertainment center. The trickiest part was the locking mechanism. I had the owner find a book with a story about a bookcase with a hidden door and turned that into the lock, so if someone recognized the book they would know how to get in. The lighted panels are windows that were already in the wall.

Pine bookcase in a Southwestern motif designed by the owner
Fir fireplace surround
Custom built-in bookcases, storage cabinets and mantle

Window bench and ancient Egyptian game board
This is a window bench with a carved top that is a game board. The board is for an ancient Egyptian game to be played by two people sitting opposite each other on the window seat. The pieces are stored in two small drawers in the front of the seat. Touch latches meant I didn’t need to interrupt the panels with hardware.
My contractor friend Matt Stone took this photo and added the commentary.
