Reclaimed library

Here are some in-progress glimpses at a HUGE library unit that will feature a rolling ladder for some good friends. The ladder will eventually attach to this big oak timber that is about 4in x 6in x 13 feet. It is a chunk of remarkably straight white oak from an old barn in the east. The counter top and upper section will be brightly illuminated to highlight the cleanly milled hickory. Everything else will be clad in this weathered white gray and brown cedar so the contrast will be beautiful.

The overall unit is 9 feet tall and about 13 feet wide. A really enjoyable project. I'll be sure and post the after shots.
