I did this unit right before I left for Florida and never got it loaded on lumberjocks. The living room had a cathedral ceiling with a marble fireplace right in the middle of a big wall. This is what I came up with to accent the fireplace. It is made out of red oak, stained, rub on poly and waxed. It really dressed up the room. The last two pictures show a chaseway for the cords. It is held in by the shelves. There is a chaseway going from the bookcase behind the panel going to the TV.

Very good looking unit Tom.

Kind of hot in Florida, isn’t it?

This will no doubt be the focal point of the room. Congratulations on a job well done.

That’s a really nice surround. I’m a big fan of Oak, especially when its stained that color. Well Done!

There are four most important types or categories of bookcases. Under these four main categories are a plethora of different bookcase styles that might fit your space.
