Tall Bookcases

My client needed something to fill a space in his townhouse. The area is narrow with a high ceiling.

I pitched the Idea of tall bookcases framed to one side by wood paneling. My client like the idea so I ran with it.

12' High X 6' in width
Paneling 8' X 5' in width

The bookcase carcass is constructed with 3/4 Baltic Birch and face framed with 3/4 solid oak fluted vertically with an ogee edge on the aprons. I used slip tenons to attach the face-frame to the carcass of the bookcase so there is no visible hardware.

The paneling is oak veneer framed in 3/4 solid oak with and ogee edge.

I topped the bookshelf with crown molding and used the same molding for the top of the paneling.

The overall look is classic yet clean. I think it fit the space nicely.
