Wife is navy, and im a Marine, and weve both got college under us so weve collected alot of books. when we first got married we had them stacked on dressers and in corners so i built us a cherry book case. Its the largest thing I’ve built and it amazes me it turned out square. I used a kraigs system pocket screws to join the shelves and top and covered them with cherry plugs cut form scrap. I finished it with a clear finish to let the cherry’s natural beauty show as it ages. The baby has crawled up it ant the dogs have ran into it is as stable as a ladder.
