Bookcase with Glass Doors

kanuJuly 9, 2007

Can someone reccommend where I can buy a Bookcase with glass doors.

Finish : Cherry or Mahagony

Budget: Size : 5/6 shelves & 12" Deep & 36: Tall

If it is in a retail store that will be great so I can checkout the quality & construction as I intend to put this in the living area.

I have a question, but don't want to hijack your thread. Do you want glass doors because of dust?

We have what you are describing, but DH made it in high school. Our is technically a trophy case, so maybe it would help to refer to it as that. I don't much like it for books though because the doors aren't meant to be opened and closed often. I suppose if they had a different handle it'd be easier.

Costco featured a bookcase with glass doors that was about $500. If you or a friend are a member, try their online resources.

I did check Costco website. I coul't find any bookcase with doors. Can you tell me which category it is listed under. Better will be a link.

My 5 yr twin girls are crazy for books. Any kind of books they like to page thro' for days looking at the pictures. We have a big collection of art, cooking books that we use once in a while. I want to keep them away from the kids. Hence the doors.

IKEA has a line of bookcases with doors called Billy. I installed and connected 3 of them together on one wall and I put 6 glass doors. Relatively cheap but look quite nice. I think I paid a total around $600. But it does require assemply (one afternoon for me) and maybe two adults (me, my wife) to raise and line them up.
