The New Directions single bookcase is crafted in our Brooklyn workshop; made of solid hardwood; your choice of cherry, walnut, birch, red oak, white oak or maple.
All components of our bookcases are made of solid hardwood having more than 20% more strength against bending than plywood.
The natural beauty of the wood is enhanced with a non-toxic oil and wax finish.
Our New Directions single bookcase is offered in several standard sizes.
Vertical heights of 72″, 84″ and 96″.
Widths of 25″, 30″, 35″ and 40″w . The shelf widths are 1.5″ less than the width of the case.
We also are able to make custom width and height variations at similar prices – just select the next larger size. This allows us to construct book walls to precisely fill a space.
The rear edge of the vertical panels are cut to accommodate the baseboard, allowing the bookcase to sit against the wall.
Each shelf is shaped to allow wiring to be extended between shelves to accommodate electronics, etc.
We offer our New Directions bookcases in wider configurations – see our New Directions double and triple bookcases.
Using multiple vertical elements, connected by three fixed shelves per bay, an entire wall can be built to fit nearly any space.
