Bookcase
I hope someone will let me know if this works!

The bookcase that I am submitting is one that I recently completed for my grandson. It all started with a basket to keep his legos in, and then my daughter asked for a case with shelves to keep things all together. since I enjoy period furniture, I decided to build a piece in that style. Starting with an opening for the basket, the rest just building on that. The basi cbox is done with half blind dovetails. The shelves ride in through dovetails. Add a little crown moulding, some bracket feet and a shelf and (many hours later) you’ve got a bookcase. It’s not a large unit, as it was to be used in my grandsons bedroom, but I’m sure we all have that smaller area where we might use a piece similar to this. As a bonus, you can even sit on the shelf. This piece was made out of walnut, with nearly all lumber dimensioned to 7/8”.

Hope you enjoy it.
