My most complicated project to date. We have a galley kitchen in our 1926 house where every square inch is valuable. This provides around the now exposed chimney surface space with ceramic tiles next to the stove which also has storage space and then a desk under which a small stool can be stored with a shelf and sitting on that the second module bookcase with also a storage area with door. The wood is that pine laminate now available at a box store. Nice to work with. Hope it holds up. Used a stain that looks blotchy but we wanted to match the look of the fireplace brick.
Learning how to use that router now. Also learning patience at dry fit and glue up. The top of the bookcase is 3/4 of an inch wider than the base. Meant making the door for the storage bin a challenge because it was not a perfect 90 degrees.
