My wife has been wanting a bookcase for a long time, so I finally built one for her. It’s made of solid oak, 42-1/2 inches wide by 10-1/8 inches deep by 51 inches high, with a warm medium oak stain. It’s quite heavy and sturdy, and will probably still be around long after she and I are both gone!

-- What this world needs is a little more sawdust on the floor.

Was it worth solid boards on the back? I’d have used ply.
