These bookcases were installed for a client in the end of a hallway. There were two boxes in the corners at the end of the hallway which required the wide panel on the left side of the wide bookcase. Looking at the wide bookcase, the master bedroom is to the left and there is another hallway to the right of the narrow bookcase. Painted poplar face frames and prefinished maple VC plywood cases, moveable shelves on shelfpins with sleeves. This was designed so that inset doors can be installed on the lower portion if the clients decided to use those shelves to store linens in the future.

Love the custom look of built-ins and these bookcases are really fine
I like pic #4 how it blends, flows and invites you into the room…like it has always been there
Great job!

Look great! I like the 90 degree style of them, kinda connects them.

You do great work. I like the 90 degree meet. It looks like the one case is a pocket bookcase. Great idea making the case so that doors can be attached later. Items like that are things that make a piece very handy for other things. Great job!
