The African Touch Campaign Teak Bookcases is a simple design beautifully handcrafted. It shows off the wonderful African hardwood from which it is handmade, and the exceptional joinery used.
The spacing for books is generous. Shelves are 335 millimetres wide (thirteen and a half inches) and 300 to 380 millimetres high (twelve to fifteen inches). Custom size teak bookcases can be accommodated. If you require a bespoke solid wood bookcase please contact us. We will happily prepare drawings and quotes.
Material and construction
The carcass of this teak bookcase is joined using through dovetail joints whereas shelves are fitted with sliding dovetail joints giving a minimalist structure of great strength. This is reinforced by the solid teak boards expertly hand fitted to the back. Solid cast polished brass corner blocks and straps protect the edges of this stunning piece, as they would have in campaign furniture of old.
We construct this teak bookcase out of the tough, hard Zambezi Teak found in the forests around our home town of Victoria Falls. Harvesting of the timber is strictly controlled on a sustainable basis by the Forestry Commission of Zimbabwe. Payments made for the timber are used to maintain the forests and control fire.
The Campaign Bookcase goes very well with the Campaign Officer’s Desk.
