A friend of mine asked me to make a bookcase for her grandchildren.
One of the constraints I had was that she needed it done in 2-1/2 days! Another special consideration was that she wanted the boys to be involved in the construction of it and they live 500 miles away from me. So, I had to build it as a kit.
She asked me to make it from plans in a magazine, but the plans called for solid hardwood construction. I didn’t have hardwood for this project. I did have plenty of cherry plywood, so I used that and added solid cherry edgebanding.
I disassembled it and she brought it down to the boys house. They glued it, clamped it, nailed the back on and added a polyurethane finish.
I am pretty happy with how it turned out, especially since it was such a rush job. And more importantly, it was a good experience for the boys.
I have a blog on LJ about this build with a few different pictures and a video.
Here is a direct link the the YouTube Video on this project.
Thanks for looking!
