My wife wanted some bookcases for the corner of one room. Unfortunately, after months of looking for what she wanted, she couldn’t find anything. So, she asked me to attempt to build some bookcases. I found a plan for a bookcase off of the New Yankee Workshop and then modified it somewhat to build a corner bookcase. As this was pretty much my first woodworking project, it was built with a circular saw and a straight edge.
I also discovered that a nice feature of bookcases that sit in a corner is that you don’t have to tie them to the walls to keep them from accidentally getting tipped over.
The trim on the top and bottom are simply tacked on so that the bookcases can be easily taken apart and moved if and when that would ever happen.
I was quite pleased with how they turned out, and my wife was happy, which is really the most important part.
