About the library: I built these two freestanding oak bookshelves for our house in my garage. The shelves are quite large (5′ wide x 8.5′ tall) so it was a pretty big (and long) undertaking, but the end product made it well worth the effort.

My wife’s inspiration was the library in the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. The shelves are a little sparse right now, but we look forward to collecting more books in many years to come.

    *swoon* Those shelves are absolutely beautiful! And the fact that they were hand built makes them so special.

    Hi, My husband and I are finally moving to our retirement home to be, dream home, final destination, whatever. We are finally able to settle some place. I have aspired for many years to have a library for us and your shelves look so nice. Our funiture is either mahogany or cherry, so yours look really appealing to me. Does it take much know how to build something that beautiful. My husband doesn’t do much carpentry. Was it hard?? Do you have blueprints?? Anything would help.
