My first built-in bookcase went rather well. The side window proved to be a bit of a problem to work around, so I chose to install an architectural reveal to allow as much light to enter the space as possible.

That’s a good use of space for the book lover. Great job!

The bookcase looks great! If I can ever get my shop producing I plan on building a built-in bookcase in my home office. What type of material did you use?

woodNoob -

I just completed a bookcase and I used MDF with Poplar trim. You can see under the Projects section here on LJ. Went pretty easy, other than the crown mold.
