OK, took the advice given here and beefed up the design. It’s actually 67” not 57”, and I am making two 30” boxes to serve as bookshelves down in front, so beefed up vertical supports right behind the bookshelves and in between them. Someone asked for Mary Tyler Moore bookshelves, anyone remember those?

Here’s what it looks like, framed up. It feels solid. something I didn’t count on: this corner of the house dips, so I have to shim the legs.

This will get a 3/4 plywood top. For looks it will get a 1X6 facing along top and bottom and either 1×6 or 1×4 vertical faces. Not sure if I will pick up the baseboard style—the whole room has baseboard plus some rounded extra stuff tacked onto it, kinda odd looking.

I appreciate the advice, folks.
