This was big project, bilding was made about 1850 and restoret couple times last this room 1970´s. Owner wanted this room look like little english style. We made all surfaces, walls and ceiling we made like they made these big surfaces long time ago with swot?? paperboard( I don´t know right word for this material). You have to get this paper little wet and then you fasten edges with small swotnails?, before it dries it looks really terrible like in this forth picture. But when you know how to do it you can get really good and straight surface only making edges straight. Again floor I made from heat treated birch and varnished with two component lacquer.
All the cabinets and list are made from oak and waxed with antiquewax. Again project where I had free hands with designing and making.

Beautiful library.I am also planning on building a library soon and will use yours for ideas.I dont know if the oak you get in Finland is different,but this doesnt look anything like the oak we get in the US.It looks much nicer!

Puupaja, Very impressive, especially after seeing the “before” pictures. I can see that was not a job of simply installing a few bookcases and cabinets. Major project that turned out beautifully. Thanks for sharing that with us and keep up the great work.

Thank´s for everybody, yes it was lot of work but I survived… this oak is pretty much as you have because it´s from your country. One picture was so bad I had to add more light for this picture it changes colors!
