Bookshlelf help

I am new to this forum but wanted to ask a question. I am building some built-in bookshelves. I have good plans for the shelves, but am having trouble figuring out how to break into the existing moulding. How do I cut into the existing or do I simply remove the entire wall's moulding (floor and ceiling) and start over after I build the shelves?

When you are building and installing shelves of the type you speak of, there are only three options.

Using a small japanese molding saw (double edge very sharp sawblade), cut the existing molding to allow enough room to install the cabinet.

Remove the current molding and cut to fit after the installation of the cabinet.

Fabricate the top of the cabinet to fit over the molding.

Take Your Pick!!
