For a spot i my kitchen I wanted a book rack for some of my favorite cook books. They tend to just sit on the shelf and not inspire as much as they could.

The exerzise was to fit the thing in between a door, a window and a wood stove – and at the same time make a frame for the books in order to “keep alle the colors inside”

The rack is made from larch and measures about 80×55x9cm. Read about how it is made in my blog here.

It turned out ok and i already have plans to make a version in full height for my appartment. Perhaps even cowering a wall with them..

It was a fun build and a process that I learned a lot from. Let me know what you think!

Very nice. What a great way to keep cooking inspiration front and center, nice blog, too.

The lamp i stole from an old metal shaper machine that sat in a metal dump nearby.
At lave surdej må være noget af det max mest overskudsagtige man kan give sig i kast med. Held og lykke!

Surdej er uendeligt nemt, lyder bare mystisk. ;-)
