Bookcase Cabinet

Posted by David Pickard on

 Hi!.....Pappy here!  I made the bookshelves for  Mammy over twenty years ago.  Normal size  books fit on them very well but bigger books  such as scrapbooks, etc are just too deep.  My  wife came up with the idea of building a deeper  cabinet that would fit between these  bookshelves to hold scrapbooks and knick-  knacks that had been in boxes long before the  bookshelves were built.  The bookshelves were made out of maple.  The cabinet in between is made from birch which I got from my major purchase which you can read about here.  It was built specifically to fit between the bookcases so the base and middle trim is cut on the sides to fit snug against the front of the bookshelves.  Mammy wanted them finished to match the white glazed portion of our kitchen cabinets so I hauled them to the cabinet shop and let them do the finish.  The finish cost more than the bookcase cabinet but it was worth it, especially since Mammy is so happy.
