      I love this idea for a bookcase. Recycled crates with plenty of spaces for treasures. I'd be tempted to make the crates out of recycled pallets.

    Inspired by the Bruno Matthson Book Crib, we introduce the Slotted System Bookcase. Whether used as a single shelf or in a seamless-looking row, these handsome hold-alls keep everything from small paperbacks to large art books and lps.

    Wherever I am, there are going to be 100's and 100's of books. And I have all kinds of ideas for the staircase at the cabin...bookcase and office area either under or beside stairs...if beside, shelving under the stairs...and either way, storage, in the form of drawers and more bookshelves in front of/inside of stairs...
