    Bookcase-cabinet

    I started this project about 1 week ago and have had a lot of isuses finishing it,because of it's size. The upper section is 65" high x 7' and is 12" deep.
    The lower section is 30.5" high x 7' and is 20" deep with 4 doors and shelf centered, but adjustable. As are all shelves inthe upper section also adjustable

    The problem I have is getting a pivture of the two sections put together as my ceiling is not high enough to alow that.

    She wants it painted to match her wall color, First time that they did'nt want it stained. But they also don't want to see any brush marks,so I guess it will have to be sprayed. I'm hoping that this unit will fit in the elevater in her condo.....other wise it will be a lot og gruntting to the 3rd floor.
    If you make a mistake it was part of the original plan!

    Nice work, and I sure hope it fits in the elevator too!

    Great work Ron! A pity we can't see it fully assembled, but what are the lady's walls colours?
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Great looking piece Ron. Sorry it has to be painted. I'll keep my fingers crossed for the elevator fit.

    Great looking piece Ron, Beautiful craftsmanship.

    If i'm not mistaken, I can't be sure from the pictures. The panels appear to be MDF ? If they are how else would it be finished? I'm not being critical just thought that I could learn another technique from you guys.

    They are an Ivory with a slight touch of green,It will be sprayed on with a semi -gloss finish. Her walls are a flat finish. So it should blend OK.

    Bob: I made the panels out of masonite. As I knew she wanted the project painted. The Cost was only about $10.00 per sheet (4x8) and 2 -1/2 sheets was needed fore the backs and door panels. Although MDF would not have been a bad choice either. Except for the extra weight.
