All our lives, my wife and I wanted a beautiful home library for our 5000 books. When we moved into our new house 25 years ago, we left one room empty and I spent the evenings of the next two months learning woodworking skills and I built this. I started with the small bookshelf units in the hallway and my wife's den, before working up to the main event! After it was done, we found that every shelf in the house was full of books, so I'm still building more shelving today. Most of the collection is history, travel, architecture and nautical.
