What You Should Know About Custom-Made Bookshelf

A bespoke piece of wooden furniture is a unique object in your office, den, or living room. It is built to last and will be useful and appreciated for generations.

  • A singular, commissioned feature catches the eye and adds style and class to any space. Owen Monro is a master craftsman who works with his clients to construct precisely what they envision, be it a wall-mounted cupboard, design bookcase, or freestanding cabinet.
  • It’s often a challenge to choose between the different options regarding custom built-in cabinets, shelving, drawer sizes, shapes, and the right timber and finish. Discuss your ideas with a professional to achieve a superlative outcome that answers to the purpose, reflects your chosen style, and suits the space.
  • We use the best components to ensure your bookcase-, cupboard-, or cabinet’s push-to-open doors and soft-closing drawers last and function as expected. Talk to us about the best construction material for your preferred style. We use Australian hardwoods that are ecologically sourced: Spotted Gum, Blackbutt, Grey Ironbark, and Wormy Chestnut, Tasmanian Blackwood, Tassie Oak. We also work with American Walnut, American White Oak, American White Ash, and Cambrian Ash, American hard maple, European Beech, New Guinea Rosewood.
  • Your custom wardrobes and other bespoke furniture require the right finishes and ensure that they look good and endure. Polyurethane is stain-resistant, durable and available in matt or semi-gloss. It resists scratches but can be dented or marred if ill-treated. The same applies to Osmo Oil, which provides a lovely natural grain finish to cabinetry.

We will gladly discuss your specific requirements concerning storage design, materials, and other relevant elements.
