Inglenook: 2010; hickory veneer plywood with quarter-sawn white oak trim; water based polyurethane finish.

I designed and built this seating nook next to the fireplace my home in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, USA. Under the cushioned seating are four drawers. Where the recess ends but the hickory veneered plywood continues is an under-stair cabinet, the outfitting of which was completed at a later date by the Charles Snead Co. of Boyce, Virginia, USA. The inglenook includes adjustable recessed lighting above the seat. The inglenook gathers the warmth from the fireplace but is also one of the more pleasant places in the house during the summer months.
