I built this bookcase for the great room in our new home.
Updated picture with LEDs installed.

I think the thingies at the top of the thingies are a bit much, but otherwise very nice.

To elaborate, the capitals at the top of the three fluted “columns” have detail at a scale that doesn’t jive with the scale of all the other details, including the column flutes and the main top capital/moulding.

In my opinion.

Not to take anything away from a beautiful project but I agree with gargey. The “thingies” don’t go. Beautifully made though.

It will not be secured to the wall, very stable.
As far as the capital “thingies” my wife saw them on a book case in a magazine and wanted them, so you know, Happy Wife happy life!

Very true. Easier said than done, sometimes!

Excellent book case. By far one of the best. Really like the before and after finish pics.

I’d like to see better pics of the capitals.
Expanding the originals only gets pixelated.
Great looking case.
