I started building these cabinets in 2006 but actually finished in 2008. (Trim and Crown) I wanted to update an old room in my house for a home office. I am a big White Sox fan so I decided to theme the room around my memoribilia collection.

Learned a lot on this project. I also did this as a learning tool to build all new kitchen cabinets.

Thanks for all the nice comments folks. I added a third picture of the panels between the book cases. (I also did the oil painting as well) another first.

That is a very nice den and cabinets, but Go Phillies! Nice work.

Wow, my second project was a slightly bigger box, yours is a quantum leap from a nice piece of furniture to a complete room remodel. Great way to put the memorabilia on display and also to continue the learning curve. Can’t wait to see the kitchen.

Very nice – I like the style of the doors, perhaps seats on the side are from Comisky Parj and I must say I have never seen the Chicago flag as curtains before:)

That is a heck of a second project looks really good. I say that as I am ponding my head on my desk, yes it is killing me to give a SOX fan a compliment.

Great project and a nice way to sit back and work.

Curtain looks like a flag that I did not recognize, any special meaning there? Nice stadium seating room looks great.
