This seemingly simple, straight forward bookshelf was a little tricky for us. The client that comissioned it wanted us to make something that is on the one hand rustic and chunky, and on the other hand still refined looking. So we opted for using walnut rather than a more rustic wood like pine or fur, kept the raw edges but sanded them really smoothly, kept the thickness of the solid wood slabs of wlanut, but hid the way it's all put toghether to make the construction look more modern.
