This is a shadow box bookcase. It’s a wall unit made to customer specifications. Being paint grade I made it out of Poplar. It has loose tenon joinery with the tenons going through the middle shelves where the dividing legs are. It was a trickier build than I thought it would be with all the tenons being glued together in several places at once. They were happy upon delivery anyway so that’s all that counts. It’s about 60” long by 29” high by 12” deep.

Nice design and I’m sure it was a bugger bear to glue up. Turned out great.
