Oak bookcase made with oak plywood for sides and shelves (with solid facings). I used solid oak for top and trim. This was my first project using a Kreg pocket hole jig which really speeded up the construction and was nice to use. It was finished with poly.
I wanted a bookcase that would fit in a small opening next to my favorite reading chair. One of the advantages of being a woodworker is that you can make something to fit your own specifications. That’s what I did here. My wife used to get irritated because I always had a stack of books next to my chair. I decided that I would build something to alleviate the problem. Now I have an oak bookcase with a stack of books next to my chair!
