A pair of bookcases made of poplar with laurel (Nectandra spp.) burl veneer. The back panel is plywood and finish is polyurethane. All joints are hidden or sliding dovetails. Shelves are adjustable. Dimensions: 30×60x143 cm (tall case), 30×60x90 cm (short case). The short case has 1.5 shelf height because it was meant to fit into a specific space. I used hit activated glue (Titebond II) for veneering.
