This is one style of bookcases that I’ve been working on for the last couple weeks. Out of the 41 total this style makes up 30 of them. They are 26 1/2”h x 49”w x 12” deep. They have two adjustable shelves. I have build at least 100 of these in the past, but one thing that was requested on these was a little lip on the back side of the top. This would keep things from rolling off the back.

Here are some recorded videos of the build
Note: they are just the raw video and of all the different bookcases

Nice bookcases
I love the idea of the camera system it’s a very nice feature…..however receiving comments is the only drawback. Video 3 – those safety glasses don’t do you much good on top of your head. Made me cringe evertime you blasted a nail into your project. I’ve done it, we all have done it. We just weren’t video-taped doing it.

Thanks for the reminder Mike. That sounds like my wife. She reminds me all the time. I need to make a conscience effort to put them on. Thanks for all the great comments!
