Building custom fit bookcases

Post date: Feb 15, 2011 10:35:50 PM

Most of my work is through recommendation.Chris had suggested to the clients that I might be able to help them. When they called me, they said "We want a few shelves put up in the living room for our books."

It's a joy to work with nice people and this couple are great.

I don't know about you, but whenever I meet nice people I'm prepared to do that little bit more.

Seeing the masses of large books they had I suggested that bookcases would be a neater option, and price-wise not such a big difference.

What came out of our discussions can be seen here

By many people's standards this long "L-shaped 9' high solid pine bookcase, built in three sections, is large, but it will accommodate just a small selection of their books!

Phil at Alsford Timber sorted out good quality timber for us, and it shows in the finished job.

Well done Phil.
