Here in the Northeast, it was a long and hard winter. I decided to use the inside time to re-design our computer room into a library and den. I gutted the room and removed a piano that merely gathered dust (see before photo). I installed shelves around the entire circumference of the room, taking advantage of the nine foot high ceiling. The shelves are built using torsion box technique and the skins are ¼ inch maple plywood on the visual surfaces, masonite on the non-visualized surfaces. The trim is maple with inlaid cherry. The wall and ceiling wood is catalpa stained cherry. The floor is sassafras stained onyx. All stain and clear coat were waterbased. I loaded the shelves with our books and hung my guitars and Pittsburgh Pirate and Steeler memorabelia. Now, if you put your nose close to the photo, you can almost smell the testosterone.
