Built-in Bookcase

100+ board feet of walnut, a couple pounds of brass, and a whole bunch of books; that’s the recipe for a striking built-in bookcase. 

After moving in two years ago, the Ett’s were still on a hunt for a proper way to store their sizable literary collection. In search of a built-in shelving system that could span across the entire living room wall, we settled on a structure with permanent vertical columns and moveable horizontal shelving.
