A local church, Coram Deo, needed a library in their new offices. We had just what they were looking for. Ninety feet of built-in maple bookshelves on two walls make a gorgeous church library.

They were looking for a very minimalist look so we decided a floating shelf design was best. With some lengths up to 14 feet it was difficult masking the supports. We decided to mount a wooden L bracket to the wall to attach the shelves distribute the weight evenly.

This maple library makes an impressive statement while still seeming clean and simple. It does a nice job of holding all of their books as well.

Really like the floating shleves, I bet they were thrilled with the way it turned out.

A very clean look. How much weight can those expanses hold?
