Mom's Christmas Presents - End tables

My mom wanted to replace some of her old This End Up furniture, so I designed her a two custom end tables.  

One end table is for next to her chair, which has a shelf that is open in the front and back, so she can store her laptop and iPad there when not in use.

The other end table is just for next to her couch.

First Commissioned Work - Built-in shelving

A colleague of mine wanted me to replace a banister and railing with a shelving unit.  

So, I designed a built-in shelving unit that is open on opposite sides.   The side away from the kitchen has only 1 opening and doors with a patterned aluminum insert.  

I ended up enclosing the column, because he didn't like the fluted column anyway.
