I built this bookcase about 13 years ago and it was the hardest project I had done at the time because of the crazy angles. It’s made with MDF, red oak, .25” hardboard and .75” plywood. I designed this to fit the “Dr Suess” themed room my wife and I painted for our son.

Here is a link to some additional pictures.

That book shelf would look great in the children’s section of any library for sure.
Great job on making all those crazy bows and angles look so good, I bet your wife and son have enjoyed it over the years.
