This little pallet bookcase project is unusual because there is not a just a single bookshelf. We built five! We placed each of these little in different businesses in my village. The idea is simple. The library is at the disposal of people, and they deposit books they do not want anymore and take the ones that catch their interest. This project is an initiative for sharing books throughout town.

Booksharing for the entire community: Little Pallet Bookcase Project!

When I saw the announcement that the association was looking for someone to do these boxes I volunteered. It was an opportunity to do something fun for the community and to let my imagination go for something beautiful. And as usual, I turned to the palette to create this project. Finding the box only a little massive and austere, I decided to add these little feet "50s" black to also bring some contrast. At the technical level, it is not very complicated; the contour is glued laminated pallet, the back with remnants of paneling. A little varnish and paint and the projects are complete.

Ce projet ci est un peu particulier car il n'y a pas une petite bibliothèque mais 5 qui ont été crées. Chacune de ces petites "boites à livre" ont été placée dans 5 commerces différents de mon village. L'idée est simple. La bibliothèque est a disposition des gens et ils y déposent des livres qu'ils ne veulent plus et prennent ceux qui les intéresse. Une initiative pour le partage des bouquins en gros.

Lorsque j'ai vu l'annonce que l'association cherchait quelqu'un pour faire ces boites je me suis proposé. Ce fut l'opportunité de faire quelque chose de sympa pour la collectivité et de faire marcher un peu mon imagination pour faire quelque chose d'un peu joli. Et comme d'habitude je me suis tourné vers la palette pour réaliser ce projet. Trouvant la boite seule un peu massive et austère, j'ai décidé de lui ajouter ces petits pieds "années 50" noir afin d'y amener également un petit contraste. Au niveau technique, ce n'est pas très compliqué, le contour fait en palette lamellé collé, l'arrière avec des restes de lambris. un peu de vernis et de peinture et le tour est joué.

This idea wasn't a hard project, and a planer made it move along much quicker.
