Further recent examples of alcove shelving, click on photos to view larger image. The photographs above show shelves made from cherry veneered boards, dyed with a deep plum mahogany colour to produce the desired effect. The shelving pictured below is a similar style, but this time in a golden oak veneer. Both sets of shelves are made to measure, built into alcoves to the side of a chimney breast. In both examples the lower pair of shelves is an extended size to house TV and A/V equipment. Also, both examples are finished with with a few coats of oil.
