I want a hardwood single bookshelf of high quality to store large photo albums in. No particle board. Single shelf unit with base and top. I want the shelf to accomodate items that are 15 inches H and 17 inches D, and be 75 inches L. While the length is the size of the wall to wall space the total unit will occupy, the 17 inches D and 15 inches H are what the shelf must accomodate, not the total dimensions of the unit's HxD. Since this unit will sit on the floor it requires an integrated base, and since it is only one shelf it requires a finished top which I will put small onjects on, such as small statues, etc. Assuming the base is say 4 inches and the top is 3 inches, the H would be the 15 inches clearance required for the albums(which are 15 inches H) plus the extra inches for the base and top. Also, the 17 inches D is required for the items to be stored, which are 17 inches D. The back board of the unit would be additional depth, not cutting into the 17 inches D needed to accomodate the 15Hx17D albums.
Most pre-made hardwood bookcases are too narrow in depth for me, being 12-15 inches D. Office equipment suppliers make steel 2-shelf designs in 18D to accomodate sales binders, however the room I need the shelf for is too formal for a steel bookcase, as the othe furniture is walnut and cherry in medium to dark stain. A steel office cabinet would look out of place in the room. Also I do not need a 2-shelf unit and would prefer the one low profile long shelf unit. As the albums are heavy, each shelf would take 180 lbs (which is what the steel ones are designed to take) without warping under the weight. Since I only need one shelf, weight is supported directly by the base and floor so the 180lbs load won't matter. Unit would need to be shipped to the Toronto, Ontario, Canada area, though the cost for that shipping would be paid by me in addition to the job cost. The shipping would be arranged by the bidder.
I would love to do this project!! Have done custom woodworking for a couple years doing various projects for customers including cabinets, wood furniture, and art. Let me know, Thanks.
