We're currently trying to clear out the spare room/office so that the girls can have a room each.
The trouble is I've got a lot of books up there
We decided that the space to the left of the wood burner will become our new office type space with the computer (so when they're older we can monitor what they're on) and my reference books.
It's 1.6m wide so I decided to make some "substantial" shelves to go there. Some of the oak from my previous post got used on this, three big slabs of 250mm x 45mm timber. Not cheap but it should last a life time and it need to be big to take the weight of all the books!
It took a while on Saturday to fit, rout, sand, stain and oil them but they look pretty good when they're up and filled with books.
The top shelf is all carpentry, building and wood books.
The middle shelf is all gardening, self sufficiency, bushcraft and livestock books.
The bottom shelf is all cooking, preserving, smoking and curing books.
I think I need some more shelves!
This isn't even all of my reference books on these subjects as all the small sized ones are upstairs!
Anyone else have this problem with books?
