Bookcase – December 2014

The alcoves either side of a fireplace are a particularly good place for bookshelves and cupboards, and this room is no exception. With one bookcase already installed, this customer wanted a near matching set built on the opposite side with a small cupboard in the middle, alcoves for storing logs, and shelves above. So I obliged…..


So first start with an empty space, and build a level platform to build upon…

Next add some sides and frame the front, plugging the screw holes so once painted you’ll never know they’re there. Then add a top, and upon that build up the sides and fit the rails to carry the shelves…

Then add the shelves, and a little door…

And there you go, a matching pair of bookcases….
