Introducing our Tall Case! This narrow bookcase-like storage tower with unique display shelving provides a lot of useful function in a small space! Perfect in a corner, you can use this tall tower of shelves for storage or display. The modern, open back bookshelf design is visually intriguing and also helps to make a small space feel larger. The lower portion of this shelf tower features staggered spacing, offering a variety of heights for whatever you choose to store or display. Bringing your eyes upward, the upper portion of this tall narrow bookcase features a unique cantilevered look, making that a focal point of this open-back showcase tower.

Hand-crafted from only the most premium woods, the rich Easter Black Walnut is contrasted beautifully by the light, shimmering Tiger Maple shelving. You will love the careful layering of the frame and panel work at the sides. Beautiful, hand-cut dovetails are the supports for the lower storage shelves and are a craftsmanship highlight at the front insides of this narrow display case. Unique hand-cut joinery is featured on the front of this tall narrow display tower, at the main support for the upper display and at the very bottom of this tower of shelves. Careful angles at the top of this display tower as well as on the front edges of the main storage shelves are balanced with gentle curves at the side framework and the cantilevered display upright. Delicate look-through spaces at the top add an elegant lightness to this handsome shelf tower design, The Tall Case.

“I had an excellent experience working with Mokuzai Furniture on several custom pieces. The company is easy to work with and highly professional. They made suggestions regarding my choice of different wood species, provided Cad drawings. My clients and I love the side table and the console made for their collective home. I highly recommend Mokuzai Furniture.
