Here is my version of a bookcase found in Wood Magazine. I changed the top design to include a hardwood top made from Oak. The case is maple ply and poplar frame painted an ultra pure white. This is the first piece of real furniture I’ve made, and the pictures definitely hide the mistakes. This has been a good learning project for my next one – a crib and dresser needed to be completed by August.
