Laminated Douglas Fir frame. 12' long 5' high. Domestic Birch Plywood back and bulkheads with steam bent Yew wood edging. Tempered glass panels with individually cut and polished Chrysocolla door pulls. Finished with Tung Oil and Shellac.
Commissioned piece. The instructions were something like this: There is the wall, something curvy, it needs to hold all our books and I never want to dust the books again.
The book case curves up the wall and out from the bottom up to accommodate larger books yet not encroach the passage for walking on the stairs.
