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.
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.
Pine bookcases with adjustable shelves
This is a bookcase with adjustable shelves we made for a customer. Bookcases like this can be made to any size. The shelves are supported with 'banjo' supports: small metal rings which can be slotted into the selected holes. This is a neat and tidy way of creating 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.
Large Hand Made 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.
