This piece was custom made for a client in Pennsylvania.

They wanted a white bookshelf and I don’t paint or do faux finishes, Fortunately I had a variety of white salvaged wood bits in my shop!

The bookcase top is a shelf that I dumpster-dived on Ottawa Street in Durham from a 1920’s house that was being renovated. The bead board back and tongue in groove planks that make up the shelves and the sides came from the Confluence salvage lot. Thanks for the Eno River Association for allowing me to salvage some beautiful old wood from this 100-year-old farmstead before the buildings were demolished.

  

Raw materials, L to R- Shelf made into bookcase top, beadboard for back, pantry shelves for sides and shelves.
