Those are great looking built-ins. How long did it take you to complete the job?

Way longer than it should have! It was one of my first bookcases like it, and I practically gave it away. I think it took about a month and a half to two months from beginning to end.

Looks good, great fit and stylistically considerate. What was the large counter made out of?

Very nice! I love the beading, love the inset doors, love the framed end panels, love the cherry wood tops.
It looks like a very well designed piece.

Well done!
