Bookcases in beech proved a little difficult to find; an oak finish is quite common but not so beech.
We did eventually find some in beech at Nobis Education Furniture. Furthermore, there was a narrow [400mm], tall [1800mm] unit that looked as if it would fit perfectly, as well as stand a chance of matching. Reviews looked favourable so we ordered it on 12th November. These are made-to-order units with a quoted 3-4 week lead time.
My nature library has been sculling about the floor of my cave waiting patiently. Today the wait was over. After a shade under three weeks, a nice man delivered my library shelves and very good they look, too. The workmanship looks fine so I’m very pleased.
I have imposters, though. The complete 22-volume Supercook hardback publication sits snugly on the bottom shelf. Supercook is rather outmoded compared to modern cookery styles but it’s complete, no longer available and I can’t bear to get rid of it. Sentimentality rules.
I even have room for expansion. I must find more odonata books.
