This is an early project (and I only have this one picture). I made this in the early 90s. I’m posting it because I made this bookcase before I got all the tools I have now. The only electronic tools I used on this project was a Craftsman circular saw and a DeWalt router.
The cool thing is, the finished project looked good (still does). My friend loved it, he is a Pastor and immediately filled it with books and asked for another. He still uses the bookcase – and still loves it.
It is cool to me to be able to turn Birch plywood and poplar into something that a friend can really use!
