Bookcases for the Study – Part 3

When we last left the bookcases, all the woodworking was done (except the crown molding) and it was ready for priming and painting.  Well, here’s a picture of the primed bookcases (shelves were primed in the basement):

Bookcases for the Study – Part One

The cases will have poplar frames covering the plywood to provide a nice trim look.  Here’s a lot of that wood stacked on the workbench.
