One of my partner’s daughter needed a book shelf to fit into an odd space. There was 26” of flat wall and then 13” of wall turned in at 45 degrees. At 11-years old, she needed a space for books and trinkets.

My design was to make a series of fixed shelves the would be embedded in the back and honeycomb through the shelf on one side. The build is solid 4/4 poplar for the carcass, face frame and shelves. The back of the main compartment is 3/4 poplar plywood and the back of the side compartment is 1/4” poplar plywood. Color is two coats of General Finishes Medium Brown Dye. Top coat is water-based poly sprayed on with my Earlex.

See my blog on details of the build.

Very nice work for a piece designed to fit in an odd corner. Bet she’ll love it!
