Hi, I’m confused about something and I hope you folks can educate me.
I’m a rookie and I’m building a big built-in bookcase project. 35 lineal feet on 3 walls. I’d like to build and finish everything in the shop (a little at a time) and install as the pieces are finished. But the face frame can’t be installed until each section is already in place.
So do I finish all parts except the face frame, then install everything but the face frame, then fit the unfinished face frame, then take it back to the shop and finish it, then install it finished onto the already finished bookcases? Is that right?
Same question about the base and crown moldings. Do I fit them, then go back and finish them, then install them? Or do I just fit everything in place, install, and then finish it where it sits in place?
