Library Bookshelves - Update

I should have updated this earlier. My dad had the bookshelves ready to put books in at the beginning of the week. He didn't want the joints to show so he made beautiful buttons to cover the joints. These have been made with cocobolo, which is a tropical wood from Central America.
I will post more pictures when the bookshelves are filled.


  1. How many buttons did he make?

  2. I had James run upstairs and count - there are 50 buttons on the bookshelves. I know Dad made more. He didn't put them on the edges of the shelves, but will if I want them there.
