Contemporary Bookcases

These bookcases were custom designed and built for the Jewish Academy in Memphis, TN, USA. They were designed in a light wood to compliment the modern design of the room. The molding has clean lines and the corners were capped at an angle.  The entire bet midrash is surrounded by twenty cabinets. Each bookcase is four feet wide and separated by vertical solid wood columns. The two-inch thick shelves will remain straight, even at four feet wide, regardless of the impact of the extreme weight of the books being housed. This is thanks to our unique technique of inter-locking three layers of durable birch plywoods at differing angles and capping the fronts with one-inch solid wood.

Custom projects are processed individually. Please contact us with as much information as you have, pictures, measurements, style, etc. We will then produce for you a detailed three dimensional computer rendering of the proposed furnishings. The renderings will help you, your committee, and donors actualize how the project will look in your space. It can also help greatly to raise additional funds and make your project a reality. We continue to revise the sketches according to your feedback until you are fully satisfied with the design and budget before we begin production.


We ship all products internationally by air express door to door with full insurance at very modest discounted prices. Smaller products, such as judaica and ner tamids are sent via EMS, usually taking 3-5 business days. Furniture up to entire synagogue interiors are shipped via UPS air taking 5-10 business days. All work is custom crated in the studio and insured by us (meaning we take care of any issues immediately and on our bill, no need to file a report)

We follow all plans and requests down to scale and our clients delighted by the products they receive. In order for us to deliver the best quality product, we need to make decisions regarding some details during production. You are likely not going to receive the exact product in the photograph on the website. Because of the organic nature of other custom projects, such as carving or glass work, there is no way in describing the exact details in rendering in advance. The only decisions that we make are those that we believe will make the product either of higher quality, stronger, more functional, or aesthetically pleasing. As a client of any craftsman you are putting your confidence in their decisions.
