Happens, when you use all solid wood.   The corner where this project will sit,, needs clean out, first... Uhoh 
   

Consider this the Final PIP of this Project.... Cool  
   

Front view.... Winkgrin  
   

Open the doors.   Even the inside has a finish Confused  
   

Open the drawer, to show off them dovetails...someday, I might even get good at these Rolleyes  
   

And a side view.   This will be back in that corner, though.   IF someone wants, I can get the final measurements
( I'm 5'11", and this is taller than I am.... Winkgrin )
Thanks for watching.... Winkgrin Winkgrin Winkgrin

Hmm, thought I was done with this one.....I did pick up a couple latches, to keep the doors shut Winkgrin  
   
Another site complained about the "open area" between the  two units..so Rolleyes  
   
Took a while today, but it is closed off Rolleyes 
   
Managed to clean out the spot where this cupboard will call home.. Cool  
   
Now, I just need to clean the bench.. Uhoh 
   
But, I think this project is finally done....

Thanks for following along Winkgrin

Sooo...this project is now done.   Next  up?    A couple weeks of "vacation"...going to spend that going through and sharpening all the edges I may have dulled the last few weeks. Rolleyes    Planes, chisels, and a few saws.   Maybe clean the bench up a bit Winkgrin 

Waiting on the "crew" to wake up, so they came move the Project out of the shop, and into it's new home.   Then we'll see how long it takes to fill it up Laugh Winkgrin Rolleyes 

Thanks again for following along....was an "interesting" Project, wasn't it? Confused

Job well done.

Yes, I greatly enjoyed the journey.  I have to agree, the additional drawer really adds to the Project. 

I'm looking forward to your next build.

Moving day Uhoh 
Since the Bookcase was lowered to the floor, decided to install the 6 Walnut plugs, and a coat or two of Amber Shellac.. Cool  
   
Got the door latches installed...hauled both drawers upstairs, and the Bookcase..whew Rolleyes 
Needed help to get the base cabinet upstairs...I got about 1/2 way up, and got "stuck" No 

Finally got this thing back together. and sitting IN it's new home... Winkgrin  
   
Soo, I'm sitting down, watching the Boss and my son fill this thing up....unit stands 73-1/2"  from floor to the top of the bookcase.  

I am tuckered out for the day... Rolleyes
