Additional construction details at bottom of page along with finish options for Birch, Oak and Walnut woods. When ordering, you will be prompted for your finish choice.

General Construction:
All wood used in the construction of parts and shelving will be kiln-dried hardwood containing moisture content of 5% - 7% at the time of fabrication. All woods will be selected for uniformity of grain and color. Wood used for internal parts will be selected to be structurally sound.

Top front molding is tennon – glued into groves in the case ends. The top frame is screwed down onto the case ends and front molding with eight 1 ¼" #10 wood screws and then the top panel is bonded to the frame. The bottom shelf and bottom front molding are sub-assembled into one integral unit, which is then tennon – glued into the case ends and held secure with 6 glue blocks. Base blocks (or feet) are screwed to the bottom front molding and case ends with three 1 ¼" #10 wood screws. Backs are spot glued and stapled on using 1" coated staples. Holes for shelf supports are 1" apart. Bookcases are shipped set up, ready for use except for placement of shelves.
Wood Finishes:
In the manufacturing process, hardwood parts are glued, cut to size, machine and finish sanded on a 2-head wide belt-finishing sander. Hardwood veneer end panels are finish sanded on a Heesman automatic veneer panel sander. Finish sanding of veneer panels and hardwood parts include the use of 100, 120, and 150 grit-sanding belts.
After parts are assembled into a freestanding unit, final hand sanding and inspection prepared the unit for the first finishing step. The selected color finish is hand applied and cloth wiped to provide a uniform color.
One coat of sealer is applied with an airless sprayer and allowed to cure. After curing, the sealer is sanded with 220 grit sandpaper to provide a uniform smooth surface.
A final lacquer topcoat is applied with an airless sprayer and cured in a heated drying room. The topcoat dries smooth to approximately a 30-sheen finish, which is resistant to normal wear and scratching.
Open bookcase with one, two, three, or five adjustable shelves, plus permanent bottom shelf, with heavy-duty frame construction.
All cases are fully guaranteed against defects in material and workmanship for 1year.
