Built-in I made for our previous basement. About 17’x8’. I had to scribe a 10’ piece above the crown because the ceiling was out an inch from one end of the shelves to the other. The floor was out over 2” so the baseboard underwent some substantial scribing as well. I think it turned out nice, but we sold the house right after I finished so we never got to enjoy it. Such is life.

Nice work Timbo,

I like the color combination with the shelves.

You won’t get the attention deserved, because it’s painted.
I understand though that it takes just as much work, or more, than if it was a stained project.
I can appreciate the work that goes into a project like this.

You did a great job dealing with the obstacles of the uneven floors and ceilings.

Well done.
I’m sure the new home owners appreciate it.
