Our 1st grade teacher always buys a bookcase to be filled with a variety of kid books for the school auction. I made it this year for her since my kid is in 1st grade but just used construction grade lumber (total cost was under $35!). I took the opportunity to try my hand at sliding dovetails to connect to the bottom shelf to the sides and adjustable wooden standards. I wanted to use a different wood but the teacher wanted pine (and it was cheaper). It seemed whenever I looked at the bookcase wrong, it’d DENT itself.
The kids painted their portraits on the bookcase shelves and it got auctioned off for $500!
