This was fun build. My first attempt at bookshelves , just used simple dadoes for the shelves with a little help from screws and glue . Each section was built seperate for more support and then screwed together . Fairly cheap to build coming in under $200 moms a happy camper.

The bookcases are beautiful! I’m about to start in on my own first set of built-in’s. If they turn out as nice as yours, I’ll be happy, happy. Would you share the type and thickness of wood you used? I like the proportions you ended up with as well as the cost!

Best Regards,

Have your say...
