Work ~ Cherry Bookcases

This past week we installed floor to ceiling cherry bookcases in  a 100 year old house.  It is a farm house and has so much character!  The floors, the trim, the doors etc  I loved it all!!

Here are the bookcases:

I finished them all with Varathane's triple thick polyurethane in satin.  It was the first time I had used it.  I really like it and plan on using it more on future projects.  The only downside was tracking down all the cans needed to get the project one.  I guess if we had just ordered it online it would have been easier.  I found that using a water based sanding sealer first then a coat of the triple thick was good.  2 coats of triple thick gave a really nice and smooth finish.
