Although our friend Drongo can hardly be described as an intellectual, he still does own a few old books, and so I thought it would be nice to make him a little bookshelf.
The bookshelf was made out of strips of cardboard, stuck together and painted dark brown to look wooden. The candle is actually just a segment of a cocktail stick, and the wick was made out of a bristle taken from an old-fashioned shaving brush, stuck into the middle of the stick. The books were made using a method I found in Abaroth's World.
The shelf is meant to stand in Drongo's Room, but I have photographed it separately because it will have its front facing the large round window (which is the only opening through which the entire room will be visible eventually).
The shelves looked a little bare, so I thought it might be an idea to put up an old birthday card that Drongo received from one of his nephews last year.
Still looking very bare though, but I just can't think of what else a hobbit might leave lying around on a bookshelf. Maybe some jewellery, like a ring? Nahhhh!
