Book Mule Original

Blue Gum Design



The Book Mule.

This is where Blue Gum Design began. Superb, portable storage for 40-50 of your favorite books. With the Book Mule you can sort your books, move your books around the house or display them so they are part of every day of your life. By the bed, under your desk, on the screened in porch or by your favorite chair the Book Mule is the best in book storage.

Canted shelves offer a unique presentation. Books are some of the most intensely designed objects you own. The Book Mule enables you to incorporate these decorative elements into the interior design of your home. Books on the top shelf can be displayed face up.

Unique patent-pending locking wedge joint allows you to assemble and re-assemble the Book Mule in seconds with hand pressure and no hardware. Like all Book Mules, it packs flat for efficient shipping.

It is light but sturdy and stable enough to stand on! The shelves will never sag.

This Book Mule is made from Baltic Ply with a phenolic film finish. Originally designed to be used for forming concrete this finish is extremely durable yet has a translucent colored coating that leaves the wood grain visible. More color options will be available soon.
