Innovative Shinnoki and Querkus Panels give appearance of Solid Lumber. The Silicon Valley is home to countless high-profile technology companies, leading to the construction of ultra-luxury residential homes. Pushing the design boundaries of this ultra-luxury market is the new $37 million estate with its seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a fitness and massage room, home theatre, a guest house and a six car garage. All the cabinets, vanities, tables and other woodwork in the house were custom made. CalCase chose to use Shinnoki and Querkus architectural wood panels for most of the furniture and architectural woodwork based on the unique use of veneers, textures and colors found in these panels. In the Atherton House, CalCase used the Manhattan Oak, Desert Oak and Midnight Ash references from the Shinnoki collection on no less than 15 different vanities, an office desk, various coffee and bedside tables and in custom closets. Being the panels are pre-finished, it avoids the typical bottleneck of most woodworking shops, the finishing room, and thereby increases through-put and operating efficiency.
