The Riverside Cantata Windowpane Bookcase with Doors has a secret. Yes, it's the perfect place to store and display books, albums, and family photos, whether you place it in the office or the living room. But beneath all that, tucked away at the bottom is a spacious locking file drawer that provides an extra place to stash valuables and important documents - or just those old photos of you in your bathing suit.
The bookcase is crafted from durable poplar hardwood solids and cherry and birch veneers, matched and finished in a warm, stately burnished cherry. Two wood-framed, glass-insert doors with decorative double-cross mullion overlays slide smoothly open. Behind each door are one fixed bottom shelf and three adjustable, wood-framed glass insert shelves - the top and bottom insert shelves are adjustable. A touch-switch accent light in each section illuminates whatever you choose to display.
At the base of the bookcase is a single large file drawer constructed with dovetail joinery, mounted on full-extension ball-bearing guides, and able to accommodate letter or legal hanging files. A built-in lock ensures the contents are securely stored away from curious eyes and hands. Tip-restraining hardware and built-in base levelers in each of the bookcase's bun feet keep the whole unit standing strong.
Notes on Riverside Construction
All Riverside domestic furniture is constructed of fine oak, ash, poplar, and pine wood. These wood types are durable and feature beautiful, open grains that make them much preferred among furniture manufacturers. Each piece of wood is first graded for quality, then kiln-dried to remove excess moisture and prevent splitting. The wood is then constructed into a high-quality furniture piece using a combination of hardwood solids and hand-selected veneers. Techniques used on Riverside pieces include dovetail joinery, heavy-duty drawer roller guides, and multi-step finish applications that include hand-sanding and polishing for a deep, lustrous result. All Riverside furniture is given this high-quality treatment to ensure the beauty and durability of your final product.
