Custom-shaker-bookcasesIt's taken six years, but our recent sale of Custom Shaker Bookcases to a family in West Virginia finally put that state on our map as the 49th state we've delivered Vermont Made Furniture to. How 'bout that?  

I think we'll have to give a prize to the person who places the first order for delivery to Alaska (that's the only state left on our list).  What should it be?  Maybe something to keep them warm like Vermont made Darn Tough Socks or flannel pajamas from Vermont Flannel

Or maybe one of Ken's solid wood cutting boards.  Well, Alaskans… be the first and we'll let you take your pick.

Solid-wood-bookcases-desks

 

How are you doing on your New Year's resolutions?  I finally started mine today.  First: get my workspace organized. 

 

This is what I want it to look like.

Instead, I'm sad to say, it looks like this.  Can you believe that?  Especially considering my work with fine, American made, solid wood furniture at Vermont Woods Studios.

I don't have a bookcase or a file cabinet.   I do have a couple beautiful solid wood desks that Ken made for me when we moved into this space last year.  I try to file everything electronically but that's not always possible so I end up with stacks of papers on my desks, notes on the wall and other stuff on the floor. 

So today I decided to start getting organized.  I asked Douglas to order me a new solid wood file cabinet from our Modern Shaker Office Furniture Collection.  If that's not enough to do the job, I may have to splurge on the huge Solid Wood Bookcase in the picture above.  We'll see.  We seem to be moving and growing a lot so it all depends on how long we're here in this lovely office with the wood paneling and aqua carpets.  I wouldn't want to get too far out of step with the modern decor.

Custom-bookcase-doors

I love it when customers share photos of their furniture after it's been installed in their homes.  It really brings our work full circle and gives us a great feeling about what we're doing.

See the narrow space available Bill P. had for this bookcase?  We customized the width of our Cherry Moon Bookcase so it would fit perfectly into this space.  Bill and his wife wanted doors on the bottom half of the unit too, so we added them.  And we made the unit shorter so it didn't obscure light switches and outlets.

 

  

  

  

Bookcase
Bill needed another bookcase to be customized for a taller height and without doors.  This one turned out to be just the ticket.

It doesn't take long for me to to fill up the shelves either Bill 😉

We're so happy that you love your new furniture!
