This is a built-in bookcase I made for my sister and her husband. The material is just painted MDF to keep the cost down and shelf sleeves and pins from Lee Valley. It was a fairly simple job but a bit huge for my tiny basement workshop. Sorry, no progress pictures, maybe for the next one.

Thanks for reading!

Been working on a built in shelf for my kid’s bedroom – really like the design of this built in for cost and simplicity – both requirements for a kid’s room!
