i noticed! this one is interesting the little bit of vertical edge along the back of the top makes it seem more suited to a kitchen or dining room, while the others seem really well suited either against a wall or as room dividers. whenever I see something like this that has "open" shelves, I think it would look really good with one end against a wall and the other end sticking out into the living space. It's too nice to forever after have a whole side hidden against a wall!
ArronK yes backs are finished frame and panel so they can be away from wall. very versitile use is the key. thank you …got a few more examples of these but wont bog things down with more examples of same thing.
I like the touch of the long tenons coming up through the top.
and the back edge cut and set up horizontal as a crown and back ledge.
Keep posting please, I'm learning so much from you,
