Nice. Did you build it for yourself?

Details please? Might take longer than the cabinet/library wall?

Nice job there. I love yellow pine and use it as often as I can. That wall unit will mellow into beauty over the years.
Check this yellow pine out.

The base and TV cabinets are face-framed boxes set on an open 2×4 grid. The face frames are fir. The doors are edge glued together and reinforced with rigid cleats glued and screwed on the back. BIG mistake. Yellow pine likes to move a lot with the seasons, so in the winter when everything shrinks, the doors bow a bunch and won’t come together when closed. Some day I’ll get around to taking them apart and make sliding dovetails for the cleats. All the doors are partial overlay.
The four bookcase units are plywood boxes with the first shelf fixed and the uppers adjustable on inset supports. The right side of the bookcase is topped with a natural edge flitch of sycamore. The finish on the face frames is oil poly and on the pine, tung oil.
The TV sits on a lazy susan base that slides out on a shelf mounted on 100# full extension slides.
The counter top is natural flat stones in thinset and grouted.
Thanks for looking.

Did you consider lap joints for the doors? Can widen holes for screws to allow for movement? Thanks for pointing that out Thinking of making shop cabinets out of old barn floor boards/pine. :-) Hope I remember. LOL
2×4 for support?

Beautiful job, I love the live edge on the top shelf. I think pine gets a bad wrap here with everyone mostly focusing on hardwoods, but this does a great job of showing what pine is capable of in the right hands.
