Your favorite books within easy reach, a comfy seat and lots of warm, natural light — these are the three features that make an inviting book nook. You can custom build this combination window seat/bookshelf/storage area for your home. And it won’t cost much if you remember two things: salvage and simplicity. With a simple design, and reclaimed cabinets (or inexpensive ready-made shelf units), success is within reach of anyone with intermediate woodworking skills. That’s what you’ll find here: a toolbox of universal concepts, techniques and solutions that you can apply to your specific project.
