Can anyone point me toward a well designed bookcase? Preferrably something with closing doors and that stands no more than 24" a.f.f. I have visited all of my fave furniture web sites only to be disappointed (very). Help!
Why don't you just design on yourself. You seem to know what you want, probably won't cost you that much to get made - comparable to purchase.
I agree. Design away.
you mean four 1x12s and eight cinder blocks isn't good enough any more ?
maybe it would be helpful if you could be more explicit about what "well designed bookcase" means to you !
yikes. you guys are no help.
Ive been through the phase already: 'why don't I just do this myself? Yeah, I'm thru with that. I have 2 pieces of furniture of my own design that ended up costing about $200 in materials and about 100 hours+ a piece. Translated into billable hours, hmm let's see...why don't I just purchase something instead.
$200 is cheap.
you have high aspirations for cheap design...sounds like a job for IKEA to me.
or design something up out of plywood and screws.
deiter rams' "vitsoe" system is the book case of choice, if you have the funds...
could you be more specific?
do you already have something in mind?
like do you like the natural wood color or you would rather have a well designed piece made of metal and glass?
or are u looking for something that it's just functional with a simple design?
what about the price? how much do you want to spend for it?
if you don't want to spend more than 500$, i guess you have no other choice than going at your local Ikea and looking for the Billy or Bonde bookcase system.
all the bookcases i have in mind cost like 1500-2000$.
i use sensible storage shelf from Homedepot. $50/each.
cut pieces of museum board or faux leather put on shelf top
dividable into 3 shelf and a half.
How about this stuff?
