At the end of March we carried out an interesting job for some clients in the beautiful market town of Thame, Oxfordshire, but just a few minutes from our workshop in Ford, just over the border in Buckinghamshire. They wanted to block up a doorway in a manner that was semi-permanent – that is, could be easily removed in the future if so desired. Our clients also wanted to have a useful bookcase on one side and for it to appear panelled on the other.
So, we made this special bookcase made to fit exactly within the doorway aperture
We constructed adjustable shelves in high quality, 25mm thick furniture grade MDF, and mounted them on high quality chrome shelf pins. We built the whole unit in solid maple, and made the framework removable to allow for removal and re-positioning of the cabinet if needed. To give the appearance of panelling on one side, we routed a double V-groove detail into the back panel.
Al the cabinetry is constructed in high quality, furniture grade moisture resistant MDF, and the whole unit was finished in a hard-wearing furniture primer ready for painting by the clients. We also made an unfinished oak strip to cover the flooring in the aperture on the living room side, and left it unfixed for easy removal. We’re happy with our ‘doorway filler’ solution, and so were the clients.
