DIMENSIONS & DRAWINGSGreg's Bookcase Dimensions
Greg's Bookcase is built with vertical 2" thick boards and the individual shelves are 1" thick. It's identical either way—upside down or right side up. We can make them in any size and can place the shelves at varying heights. If you order the standard shelf without any comments added, it will be built as described above with each board equidistant from each other. If you'd like the individual shelves at varying heights or made thicker (like the 2-inch framing for example), just mention it in the comment box at checkout. No extra charge as long as there are no more shelves added (See drawings below).
If you need a custom size or custom options (like no backing to the bookcase), just choose a size that is as close as possible to the size you'd like but a bit larger. Click the add to cart button, then choose the standard options you'd like (wood grade, finish option, etc.) and then in the comment box below your selection, just write what you'd like. For example, you can write something like: "Please custom size my bookcase to be 44" H x 37" W. I'd like only 2 shelves between the top and bottom shelf. One at 11" off the ground and the other at 30" off the ground. I don't want a backing to the bookcase. Please leave it open on the backside."
If you'd like a custom design or a much larger bookcase than the sizes listed, use our contact form to let us know what you need
Shelving is 31"L on the left side, 25"L on the right side, 6 1/4"D x 9 1/4"H. Triangular equipment stand is 37"L across the front and 25" L on each side going back to the corner wall.Custom Sizing
Like Greg's Corner DVD Storage Shelf but need different dimensions? Have a different design in mind? Just contact us with your specific requirements and we'll put together a quote for your approval. A set of autocad drawings are included with each custom shelving order to make sure all dimensions and bolt holes are clearly agreed on prior to construction. Drawings are made at no extra cost. Sorry, we cannot make autocad drawings for non-customers. Drawings are time consuming and we just don't have the staff available. If you have a drawing or a sketch, send it along and we'll quote the job for you. But, we'll still make an autocad drawing prior to beginning any custom shelf order to avoid any misunderstandings.

All You Need is a Few Tools and a Friend.
Assembly is best done by two people and usually takes about half a day to a day, depending on size. Pergolas need a ratchet wrench, a hammer and a ladder to put them together. In some cases, you might need a drill to attach the posts into concrete. As with all our products, we preassemble pergolas in our shop to ensure everything fits together. All hardware is included and all parts are clearly labeled before it is shipped. We also include detailed step-by-step instructions.
Take a look at our assembly instructions below for specific details. If you plan to pour concrete to hold the posts, the project will require an additional half day prior to assembly. Please do the concrete pour a few days prior to assembly to allow the concrete to cure.
Special talent is not required to re-assemble our pergolas. But, if you would like help, just let us know. We have our own team for installations in California, Nevada and Southern Arizona and a network of local contractors we recommend for farther afield.
Care: Your Forever Redwood Furniture will last for decades in year-round weather without maintenance.
Depending on the wood grade you choose, even with harsh year-round outdoor conditions, you can expect your furniture to last from ten to forty years without maintenance of any kind.
Being outside year-round is rough on any woods finish. The surface absorbs UV rays, pollution, constant variations in moisture and temperature and it also oxidizes. This is why most wood just doesn’t hold up and the surface color slowly changes towards a silver patina over the years. But, with Forever Redwood, you don’t have to worry. The silver patina is surface deep only (less than 1/64") and is not indicative of decay. Your set will last decades and is not compromised in any way by the surface color change. For example, we keep our display items as is without refinishing to show off this natural aging (we like the patina!).
Although Forever Redwood is maintenance-free, we recommended you take a few minutes as needed to clean by either hosing down and/or brushing/dusting away accumulated debris (no soap or chemicals needed). If you’d like to keep your set looking its best for decades, please go to: Care and Finish.
