I guess it came out 3/4” too short…that’s the reason for the wood blocks under the legs, huh? Just kiddin’! This is really nice.

Beautiful bookcase! They make inserts to drill into bottom of legs with levelers if you want to get rid of the wood blocks. Great legs!

I too, like the detail in the legs. It makes it stand apart from a bookcase. Nice

Ty All for the kind comments. herbr the wooden blocks were used to prevent the still drying Tung oil from seeping into the carpet below! Does that tell ya’ how close to having it done in time I was? This piece came from the plans in Wood magazines September 2006 issue171. They made a mistake in the original plans as to when to cut the biscuit slots in the legs in fact. The legs to many would appear to be just what they are unfinished round cabrioles, I chose to finish them this way simply because the usual rounding of the legs appeared to be too dainty for my taste. While I’m sure that many builders before me found them to be substantially adequate, the total weight of this bookcase to me cried for a more robust leg!
