Instead of built-in cherry bookshelves, the customer preferred "stand alone" bookcases so they could be moved from room to room, or taken with the customer if/when the house was sold. However, the four (4) bookcases were locked together & secured to the studs in the wall.
Another major concern was that the customer had numerous books and paperbacks of various sizes to store; ample adjustable shelving was a top priority! Finally, the customer requested a lower storage section with doors with one (1) fixed shelf inside.
To protect & bring out the beautiful pattern and color of cherry, the customer preferred a sprayed lacquer finish. Each bookcase was also given a final light coat of wax and hand rubbed to a satin finish. Within a 24 hour period, the customer had completely filled the 4 cherry bookcases & suggested that a 5th bookcase was probably necessary!

Steve was fantastic to work with. He frequently sent updated pictures and checked in regarding decisions so everything was done just the way we wanted it. He spent a lot of time on the delivery and installation for a perfect fit and went above and beyond to provide us with options for the bookshelves to be together as one unit or used separately. I would highly recommend working with Steve for any woodworking project. The finished item is exactly what we were hoping for!
