« Part 8: Cabinet Base Finally Finished Part 9 of Cabinet/Bookshelves series Part 10: Here's the details... »

The bookshelves are relatively simple compared to the Cabinet Base, and they went together fairly quickly and easily.

Custom made the simple moldings that just finished of the top and bottom of the shelving unit, sanded the unit, and next weekend will be staining and applying shellac…

Here’s my main lifesaver helper Dave hard at work, while I do the important job of supervising… Hahahaha!

The case is made from 3/4” Mahogany Ply, and the face frame from 3/4” Mahogany lumber. On the top is 2.5” wide 3/4” Mahogany lumber, which is glued and nailed into place, and overhangs the face frame and sides by 1.5”, to top it off, and a 3/4” cove molding running around the under that. At the bottom are some 3/4” quarter round molding just to finish off the legs and sides. The quarter round is visible in these photos, the cove molding is not..

I’ll take some photos of it standing up tonight, if that will help you?

Hahaha Rob, you know, there’s no sense growing old, without getting smart!
