Book cases I did for a customer.
Maple with birch plywood, satin lacqer finish.
The design challenge in these is that they went in a loft accessible by a 2’ metal spiral staicase or by a ladder over a railing, approximately 16’ off the second floor. I did not like the way the corner turned out, and have other ways I could have done it, but this is pretty much what the customers wanted, and an L corner cabinet would have seriously been difficult to get into the room.
The shelves are all adjustable and there were more than I put in. There was a nasty smoke detector I had to put on the face of one of the cabinets, because it was linked to others, and well, couldn’t just be moved.
