Shaker Furniture Bookcase

maine-furniture-forrest-proctor-shaker-bookcase2 Shaker furniture, bookcase, pictured here in walnut, made by master Maine furniture maker Forrest Proctor.  This handmade bookcase features spectacular dark walnut tones and grains, hand-carved pulls, meticulous joinery, two top birdseye maple drawers, and a natural, non-toxic finish.  Available in any type of wood, this Shaker bookcase is a beautiful addition to any room.  Walnut furniture, handmade furniture, such as this, will never go out of style.  Custom bookcases from Forrest proctor are available in any type of wood, and will be delivered to you with white glove service, and a lifetime guarantee against defects in workmanship.

 My philosophy, when making a piece of furniture is that it should be beautiful, functional, last for generations and hopefully become a family heirloom.  My personal style revolves around designs that are uncomplicated and easy to look at.   A number of my pieces are variations of Shaker designs, which I find simple and elegant.  This allows the wood itself, the color and grain pattern, to play a more important role in how the piece looks.  This is where the individual furniture maker has the opportunity to show his or her artistic ability to not only build a well designed piece of furniture but a beautiful piece as well.  The furniture you see in the gallery are examples of my work.  If you see something that interests you, please remember, I build custom furniture.  You and I can work together to design that beautiful piece that fits perfectly into your home or office. I hope you like what you see and I would be happy to answer any questions you might have or discuss a custom project you have in mind.
Sincerely,Forrest E. Procter
