Looks really nice Krafter! When I was talking with your wife at the eye doctors she mentioned this special bookcase door you were building.
Hope to see photos of it after you get it installed.

I flipped your photos for a better look!
Thanks for sharing!

Very nice. That’s going to be heavy. Maybe you could add a roller or two on the bottom to carry some of the weight as it opened and closed. You’ve really done a nice job on it, Tony. Congratulations and welcome to Lumberjocks.

So the bookcase IS the door? COOL!
How is it latched? Magnetic key? or is the doorknob tucked up into the corner of a shelf where it cant be easily seen?
