A Quick Build for my Daughter who requested a Bookshelf for her classroom, Made from 1/4” quarter sawn white Oak Plywood and 1/4 sawn white Oak Solid Wood. I really do not like working with plywood! Not perfect by a long shot, but hopefully she will like it? Cannot believe what wood is costing here now, over $12 bd/ft for white Oak! and $150 a sheet for the Plywood!

Very nice job. I certainly do agree with you about the price of wood not only has it gotten very expensive but often also very hard to find good quality hardwoods.

Andre there are a lot of features I like about your book case. The cutout on the base and that front top piece. You made a very nice bookcase and I’m sure your daughter will love it.

Bookshelf delivered to the class today, Total different colour than her Oak Desk! Maybe the 40 – 50 years age difference? Bible stand left to do then time to start on stuff for Grangirls! Thanks for all the kind words.

This is a real beauty, the attention to detail is phenomenal.

Nice design and workmanship. Nothing wrong with incorporating plywood panels like you did on the back.
