My retired father-in-law was discussing his ideas for two bookshelves for his office. His plans were very basic…simple even…so I came in to save the day (lesson learned and yes humility applied). One and a half very long days later, I had a couple of decent bookcases. Boxes are made with birch plywood. The face frames/trim are poplar. Primed with Zinsser Shellac-base primer and painted with Benjamin Moore Advance. New technique for me was to use a V groove flush trim bit on the edges of the face frame. Can’t see it in the picture but it creates a nice detail. Overall, an enjoyable project, although a bit rushed for a newby to woodworking/hobbiest. Most importantly, a fun time was had by all. There was an understanding though that these bookcases come back to me in the will.
