My next big project, if I ever get the d*mn shop in order is
bookcases. We have TONS of books.
Anyways, I have plenty of plans for a case, so that's not what I
asking asstance on. It is the installation of the cases.
The house has wall-to-wall carpeting and 1/2 base molding
in the rooms where there will be the cases. I know the
tackless strip for the w-to-w will raise the back end of the
case up a bit and the 1/2 molding will force it from the wall,
so that means the case is just not going to be straight
How best do I handle this? Do I put in leveling blocks in the front
and raise the front to match the offset from the tackless and do
I pull the molding and cut it fit the cases against the wall.
I already figured that I would tie the cases to the wall, as we
live in earthquake country. That's a given. But in all of the
plans I have, they don't talk about either the molding or tackless
So how do you do it?
