I finally finsihed this project around the end of July. I’d been working on this for about 4 months for an hour or two each night and when I had some free time on the weekends. There are six storage cabinets with a shelf inside below and just above are display nooks. Above that are about 4’ high bookcases. The backs of the bookcases and nooks are MDF beadboard. There are six shallow but wide drawers on Blum Blumotion slides. The mantel surround is made of plywood, MDF, and hardwood edging. The wood is mostly birch and some beech (whatever was handy), birch plywood, and some MDF. The raised panels are MDF for stability. Total length is 22’ and finished height is about 9’. My wife insisted on painting it all white because the trim in the room is white and I wanted to keep her happy so that’s what I did. The painting took a long time but I’m glad it’s finally done.
