Half Wall Bookcase
Building the Large Bookcase
Frame is glued and screwed together, now I’m applying glue to attach a 3/4″ back.
After the back is applied we joined both book cases together and then applied the face frame below.
Face frame applied now the tedious work of filling and sanding.
Bookcase awaiting install, the top shelf / Scotia is not attached. I leave it off because it is easier to scribe to the wall after the cabinet is placed. We then will attach the top on site.
Your looking at the end of the bookcase that will go against the wall. The overlapping wood is necessary to scribe the case to the wall. During layout we discovered that the wall is out of plumb and the 1/2 wall is not level.
The other end of the bookcase has a finished shelf edge and a finished end panel.
