There’s not a lot to tell. These are 9’ tall and each about 52” wide. These are for a friend from the FD. He’s been talking to me about doing them for years, but got serious about it this year. The bottoms are one wide piece and the tops are made with two units each. They were too wide to have one unit. Made with MDO and poplar. Painted with tinted acrylic lacquer.

Thanks everyone. I’ve done quite a few of these, built in bookcases on either side of the fireplace. It’s amazing how they change the room. The before and after pictures are always shocking.

Really nice work, excellent new look.

(I am always amazed that some people like their tv screens that high. My wife and I find that type setup to be almost unwatchable unless we are standing up, but of course that has nothing to do with the cabinets!)
