Libraries and Bookcases

Libraries and bookcases are a bibliophile’s dream and the ultimate addition to any home office, sitting room or sanctuary. Book lovers need a display that’s worthy of great literature. Mark Twain said “In a good bookroom, you feel in some mysterious way that you are absorbing the wisdom contained in all the books through your skin, without ever opening them.” Clearly, Twain had been in quite a few stunning libraries that were hand-crafted with the finest wood.

Select from a wide variety of woods like zebra wood, maple, white oak or rustic walnut. There are many wood types to choose from, each providing a different look and feel for your library. You can customize acrylic urethane paints or choose from hundreds of finishes, stains and glazes. For homeowners who prefer a more rustic look, sand blasting is a possibility. However, don’t feel overwhelmed by all the choices.

At Swirl Woodcraft, we understand that facing hundreds of possibilities can turn a fun project into a stressful one. We’ll work with you to design the ultimate library or bookcase. This is an exciting time and you deserve the library of your dreams, whether it’s ultra-modern or taps into a little Harry Potter inspiration. For many people, books are their most treasured possession. Whether they collect first editions or want to showcase their love of classic literature, a good bookcase can make a huge difference. In short, a bookcase is a frame — albeit a big one — that’s meant to protect and highlight beloved books. You can tell a lot about a person from checking out their book collection, so make sure your volumes are properly displayed. Doesn’t your bookcase or library deserve to be as personalized as your collection?
