I spent a fortune having a bookcase custom made for my home! My office is entirely slender however taller than most rooms in the house; I had a custom furniture store make the bookcase the perfect size for the office plus all out of difficult oak, then the glass was strategically sited in the case to show the front, side plus a portion of the back of the book.
It is the coolest thing I have ever owned before. I got to prefer it for around 3 months before I ruined it. The self-explanatory reason is that my Heating plus A/C unit was not set constantly. I never considered how air quality can affect wood, apparently if the air quality is too dry, wood can split. If the air quality is too moist, the wood will swell plus warp; Well, my temperature never gets all that warm, I don’t even bother with AC. When Summer came around, I just let my bookcase get super hot. The moisture from outside got into my home plus my indoor air quality got absolutely moist, then not only did mold form along the wood plus around the glass, however the wood warped. The bookcase now is slightly off. It is no longer perfectly wedged into my office, however at an angle. It also looks prefer it is going to fall over. I spent a fortune on the it plus it looks terrible. All of this is because I don’t own AC or a dehumidifier, however either of those Heating plus A/C pieces would have saved my wood case. It is too late now though.
