I think a bit of pride for this is justified! Great colors and very nice job.

Quite attractive set of built-ins you have created. Wow, 2 years – that’s dedication. Wish I had an entire wall of shelving for my books that looked that nice. Well done.

How did I almost miss this one?

The natural maple? interior is one of my favorite looks. But the purple heart? trim really takes it to another level.

I love the way you floated the bookcases and center cabinet, the true 4 panel book matched inset doors, the dovetailed pull outs.

The wavy top rail is really cool. I hope others appreciate the effort it took to make it work with the face frame.

nice job, I mean, really nice.

Thank you, everyone for your comments and compliments! WoodchuckerNJ – yes, all face frame and trim is purple heart, the rest is maple. Reedwood Mark – you really get it – thank you! I thought of chamfering the joints, but thought it would be too much. Next time…

-- Cindy in Seattle,
