For anyone who might be interested to help, my wife said she needs a bookcase to go with this. So, I’m open for ideas on basic design.
Since the desk is so simple in basic design, I was thinking I’d do something just as basic. We decided on dimensions of ~76” h x 36”w x 12”d. Given the tapered legs of the desk, and the medallion inlay, we thought we’d duplicate the medallion, but I don’t know if I want to just taper very short legs at the bottom of the bookcase, or attempt some other type of design element. I’m beginning to play with sketchup on it, but nothing really pops yet.
So… All shelves? Some drawers? Maybe pencil drawers half-way, and a couple filing drawers? Hmmm…
