This is a built-in I just completed. The fireplace and the mantle were already there. The recesses on each side of the fireplace housed a couple of IKEA-type armoires. Customer wanted a unit that blended in with the fireplace. The bottom sections are ~ 42” wide x 36” high x 22” deep. The top sections are 66” high x 12” deep. Built with paint grade maple veneer plywood and solid poplar for the nosing on the counter tops, the nosing on the shelves and the face frames. The finish is sprayed waterborne lacquer primer followed by white waterborne lacquer. With its very high solid content the primer did an excellent job at filling the small pores of the maple and poplar. After a light sanding I had a very smooth surface on which to spray the top coat.
