I built these for one of the Sunday school rooms at my church. The idea is for the shelves to house learning manipulatives, and for doors to slide into place to hide the items when not in use.
I used birch-veneered plywood for the bulk of the structure and solid birch for the face. The joints are dado and glue- no nails were used, except to secure the melamine to the back. They're finished with a sealer and polyurethane.
This blog is dedicated to showcasing the furniture design and construction of yours truly, Peter Deeble. I build furniture in my garage-turned-studio in Long Beach, California.
I began building things with my dad as a kid, fashioning my own cases for records and instruments and other such wares. I also built countless skateboarding ramps with my friends. As long as I can remember I've had a proclivity for inventing and creating things, and as such woodworking has always been a natural outlet for that. A few years ago my attention turned to furniture as my passion for carpentry deepened.
My aesthetic tends towards modern and minimal, mid century modern, Danish modern, etc. and usually involves solid hardwood such as walnut, cherry, maple, rosewood etc. You can contact me at deeblep (at) hotmail.com and you can also follow me on instagram @petedeeble.
