I have not posted a project in awhile so I thought it was about time to put something up.
These bookcases are fairly routine but they do represent the final element in the all-weather room addition that we began in May of this year and completed on October 4th with the installation of the bookcases. When we added the room to the house we took out two exterior doors and my wife informed me that I was going to put some bookcases in their place since she needed more storage.
They are built with oak and oak plywood and have cherry accents. Where possible I try to find a way to include cherry in my projects. The finish is 5 coats of shellac. I decided on this finish due to the influence of Frank and David. I have generally used it as a sealer after staining but have never used it a finish coat before but it is always good to try something new.
By the way 20 minutes after the installation was complete my wife had the bookcases filled with books and “dust collectors” and she “commissioned” me to do another bookcase downstairs.
Thanks for looking.
