The bookcase is made from white ash boards from a tree sustainably harvested from an urban area with steel legs. The metal legs are notched into the edges of the boards so they "float" between them and extend past the top shelf 6" to lean books against. There are no exposed fasteners, but the legs and shelves can be separated for shipping. The mill finish has been left on the steel which shows the character of the material. The welds have been ground smooth and the steel has been clear coated.. The wood shelves have been finished with PolyWhey, a finish made from cheese making by-products.
The piece is 36" tall, 48" wide, and 11" deep and the space between the shelves is 12". A 5' tall version of this shelf design with 2 more shelves is available.
