“Your library is your portrait” – Holbrook Jackson


Any chance I get to make storage for books, I jump at these days. There is something honest and considered about bookshelves, and when I was asked to make a small library for an academic img_5808with eclectic tastes who lives less than a mile from the workshop, I couldn’t have been happier.

Using all solid White Oak timber and solid copper accents all through the unit, we’ve img_5780-1
made a wall of book and record storage, with a handmade ladder that hangs on a rail. The sliding doors are frame and panel with copper handles and there is a small built in wardrobe with enough room for a suit, shirts and a couple of pairs of shoes for the weekend guest.img_5878

In this study/library, there is a built in wine rack as well as a standing height desk along the side wall in all the same rich materials…


More library work please!
