Behind the Scenes: Bookshelf

Digital to Analog

There’s a fine line between built-in and shop-based projects. Most of our work sits squarely on the shop end of the spectrum, but occasionally there are projects where we can do the bulk of the work in the shop and then install on site. The Ett’s bookshelf is a prime example of that model. 

In addition to building a range of shelf heights, we wanted to add an element of flexibility, so we focused on a floating shelf system. By using brass pins, the clients can remove shelves as necessary. Beyond the flexibility, the pin system offered the benefit of building the vertical and horiztonal elements separately and then combining on site. 

Here’s a look at how the shelving came together.
