Walnut Sales Counter Desk and Bookshelf with Matching Shelves and Secondary Table

I was delighted to accept this commission for my local neighborhood used book store (Pegasus Books in West Seattle), as in my other life I am a writer of fiction and occasional non-fiction, and an avid reader going back more than four decades. Built to spec from Armor-core walnut plywood and walnut planks cut into a subway tile pattern, and featuring two locking cash drawers, two office supply drawers, an integrated power strip and CPU platform, and about 27′ worth of 10″ deep shelving, I am very happy with how this 84″ x 33″ x 24″ sales counter/bookshelf/desk turned out. I also built this sturdy matching stand for a card catalog and three shelves with flared sides to hold books up (the third isn’t shown, as it had to be trimmed before I could install it, and I did not take pictures after).

Day Bed Frame with Storage Cabinet and Shoerack Shelf

One of the more idiosyncratic things I’ve built, for the same clients as these built-in bookshelves. Douglas Fir and Birch Plywood, new material. Built onsite under a rain shelter, with the client’s chickens to keep me company.

Teredo Clamwood Spice Rack

Salvaged Teredo Clamwood, which is milled from logging booms used to float timber down Puget Sound. The clams dig burrows in the booms, which when milled make for unique and interesting texture on this decades-old material. Roughly 18″ H x 12″ W x 3″ D. Holds 16 standard-sized spice jars.

Offered for sale: $45. For more information, or to commission a spice rack, email dt@dtfabs.com.

Teredo Clamwood Bookshelf

Salvaged Teredo Clamwood. 96″ tall x 36″ wide, shelves 10″ deep x 11″ high.

Built this as part of a larger renovation/installation. Teredo clamwood is milled from logging booms used to float timber down Puget Sound. The textured holes/tunnels are made by Teredo Clams, who dig burrows in the booms and live their lives there. The picture above is of the final installation, nestled next to an alternating-tread stair (to an attic I renovated) made of the same material.

Not for sale. If you’d like to commission a shelf like this, email dt@dtfabs.
