The Bookcase Wall Cabinets are finished. It all started with moving our picture albums and books to the HCH… hill country house. We looked for cabinets which could be purchased and found one without doors or crown molding trim for $ 3,299.99 plus shipping and tax. Well, I get a few woodworking publications and found one which looked good. I made many modifications, adding more depth to fit the large albums… etc. One of the 3 pages for the cut list is attached, which illustrates about 450 different cuts. We now have 59 family picture albums and many books in the bookcase. The next PIK is the cabinet without the oak trim, oak desk top or bottom shoe molding. The final PIK is the finished cabinet. It took about 3 months, a half of a lumber yard and many coats of high end paint. But I have a bride of 43 years very happy… priceless

Yours looks a lot better than what was for sale.
