This bookcase was my first design that incorporated stained glass. The branches are solid solder with a black patina. I used SOSS invisible hinges for the doors.

Oh my. How very Artistic! That is one beautiful piece of furniture. What are its dimensions? And the interior… spaced shelves or something else?

Chadwick,

Your bookcase is outstanding. Did you do the glass work too? Thanks for sharing and welcome to LJs.

Is it an illusion from the picture angle or is there a suttle/gentle taper on the front corner posts near the bottoms? Very impressive.
