Half Wall Bookcase
The side of the bookcase overlaps the half wall.
The back of the bookcase is 3/4″ birch plywood and was needed for strength. the seam will disappear once painted.
The bookcase ends at the steps and the homeowner did not want to put in a railing so she suggested we build a “see through” case to return on this short wall.
Attaching Top and Return Cabinet
The top shelf was attached from below with screws and Scotia molding was installed under the shelf.

A larger view of the room. While Bill was installing the bookcase I installed the mantle in the background.

Bookcase installed. When the client came home she told us she loved it,and that it was better than she had hoped for…. now that’s what I like to hear.
