This library spans a 6 meter long wall and extends from the floor to approx 300mm from the ceiling. The cases are made of shutterboard with 22mm pine facing. I made the raised panel flush hung doors from superwood. The only hardwood on this project is the TV shelf which is natural finished beech. I installed rails for a library style ladder which is handy to reach the upper shelves. Downlights are installed in the outer 1/3 of the case tops to provide lighting for all the adjustable upper shelves. The entire project (except the beech TV shelf) is painted with an antique white latex.
