Room Bookcase project came about because of the Curio
Cabinet project (right) in which two bookshelves were converted to curio cabinets. That
project left the dining room floor littered with books. The bookcase is
semi-modular; the top, doors, and back are easily removable, as the unit
would be difficult to move fully assembled. The top is large enough to be
useful as a buffet. The back was the last piece to be installed; it went
on, and the books went in, on Saturday, November 23, 2001. The wood is red
oak. All hardware is solid brass.
