This floor-to-ceiling bookcase was made of cherry plywood and cherry hardwood. It’s made of individual boxes, each with sides, top and bottom, and stacked so the weight bears on all the units beneath it.

In the second photo, where there are no books, it can be seen that different cubes have different heights and depths to accommodate different sized books. At the bottom there is a row for vinyl record albums which is hidden by the bed.

Simply, wow.

Looks like a lot of planning and work went into that. How long did it take?

I like how you sized all the shelves to custom-fit all your books. There is very little space not taken up by books or items. Quite an impressive collection, too.

Thanks, everyone, for your kind comments.

Matt, it took about four months working evenings and weekends, A few small projects may have snuck in there during that time, too. The bedroom was in disarray for the last month.

That is a spectacular bookcase! And the lighting accents it perfectly.
