Here at Greenline Fine Woodworking we develop a fully detailed drawing before beginning the process of making.
Layout begins in chalk. Oregon Black Walnut 23" wide x 16' long x 1 1/2" thick.
This process optimizes the material for grain matching and waste reduction.
Let the millwork begin.
Preliminary assembly complete w/ dados for sliding doors.
Olive Ash veneers fresh from the vacuum press. It took 3 weeks to flatten these veneers before we could work with them.
Joinery at top corner. We chose a very simple joint to celebrate the beauty of the wood. Grain matched top / end panel.
Shoji - Kumiko ready for joinery
Tung Oil being applied.
Oil Finishes are very labor intensive, but afford a close relationship with the wood.
Beautiful shelves. We thought these should be wall art!
Notice the grain match of the sliding door panels and live edge of the top.
Final shop assembly prior to delivery.
Inset ebony pull. Veneer grain matched at corner. Traditional Rice Paper.
