Pine Bookcases Made To Measure

Custom handmade pine bookcases - made to any size from solid new pine or old pine floorboards. See images for bookcases we have made in the past.

The new pine bookcases are less expensive than if they’re made from old pine floorboards. They can be wax finished, painted for you in any Farrow & Ball colour, or just left in the bare wood and can be made with shaped cornice top, and/or bottom plinth. Please ask for more details.

All of our bookcases are made from solid pine, and never veneered. For bookcases over 4' wide it is usually best to have a centre partition. These hand made bookcases can also be made to partly dismantle if access is limited.

Difference between overall (top) depth and shelf depth: For bookcases with adjustable shelves we suggest having the shelf depth 3.5cm less than the top of the bookcase. For bookcases with fixed shelves we suggest 3cm difference.

Central partition/divider: If you’d like your bookcase to be more than about 110cm wide, we recommend having a vertical central partition fitted for support. You can see an example in the images.

In the inquiry form below the images you can let us know the height, width and depth, and number of shelves you’d like your bookcase to have, whether you’d like your it waxed, left in the bare wood or painted for you, and whether you’d like it made from old pine floorboards or new pine. Also whether you’d like fixed or adjustable shelves (adjustable shelves are a little more expensive). We can also give you a quote for delivery if you enter your post code.

Bookcases (below) made from old pine boards. If you’d like a more rustic looking bookcase these are perfect. They can be made from old pine floorboards, roofing timbers or if you’d like thick boards then old pine scaffold boards are perfect. They can be made with any number of fixed or adjustable shelves. Waxed, painted or left in the bare for you to finish yourself.

Hand Made To Measure Pine Corner Bookcases

Here are some examples of large 2 piece pine corner bookcases we have made in the past for customers: These were made from new pine. Corner bookcases can be assembled inside the room. The shelves can be designed to be adjustable or fixed. These particular bookcases were finished in a fairly rich coloured wax, with a plinth and an attractive cornice, but we can use different shades of wax as required. Corner bookcases can be made to any size, and I can come and assemble them for you personally if required.

Pine bookcases with adjustable shelves

Bookcases can be made with fixed or adjustable shelves. In the videos below you can see a new pine and an old pine board bookcase, each with adjustable shelves. Bookcases like this can be made to any size. The shelves in our new pine bookcases are supported with 'banjo' supports (small metal rings which can be slotted into the selected holes), and our old pine board bookcases have brass strips and slot-in supports. These are neat and tidy ways of supporting the adjustable shelves.

Types of finishes:

The bookcase can be waxed in a wax tone/colour of your liking or hand painted in any Farrow & Ball colour. Or we can leave it in the bare wood for you if you prefer to finish it yourselves.

Please let us know if you want the bookcase left in the bare wood and you are intending to wax it yourselves. You might like us to treat the wood with a caustic solution so the wax takes to the wood better. Please ask for more details..

Pine bookcases made from new pine, with adjustable or fixed shelves can be made to any size. This particular one you can see is still in the bare wood and has adjustable shelves. They can also be waxed or painted for you.
Bookcases like this can be made to any size from old pine floorboards, roofing timbers or scaffold boards. Floorboards tend to be fairly thin and very rustic, roofing timbers and scaffold boards often thicker and produce a cleaner look with less marks.
