Classic Oak Bookcase
“Every book lovers dream; my classic Oak bookcase towers above the room giving your book collection the home it deserves”
Every book lovers dream; my classic Oak bookcase towers above the room giving your book collection the home it deserves.
With this piece I wanted to create more of a classical feel, rather than my usual more contemporary style. To create this effect I devised the angular paneled design, only using subtle curves for decorative mouldings on the edge of the top and plinth. However I decided to crown the bookcase with an elaborate cornice moulding; drawing the eyes up to the very top of the piece and showing the full splendor of the book collection below.
The piece has a number of interesting features as part of the design. The fully adjustable shelves are mounted on wooden pegs, which fit into holes on the bookcase ends; this allows them to be mounted at any height accommodating any size of book. The lower part of the bookcase has large paneled doors, allowing you to hide your collection of trashy novels from your friends.
I chose to finish the bookcase with a medium fume, giving the Oak its darker colour and bringing out the wonderful patterns in the grain. The final stage was to wax polish the piece to create it the smooth texture and light sheen.
My classic Oak bookcase is the perfect addition to your study or living room. I could even create a bespoke piece to suit your collection perfectly; this could range from the smallest of shelving units to your very own fitted library
