This is the first bookcase I built. My mother wanted something with a good bit of storage and of course built by her son. So this is what I came up with. I drew it up on sketchup which helped alot in the building process. It pretty much allows you to cut all of the major pieces to the exact dimensions (sides, top, bottom, back, shelves and such), everything except the drawers.
The case itself was built from 3/4” birch plywood with a 3/4” popular face to hide the edges of the plywood. The smaller cubbies were made from some 3/4” popular. Drawers are constructed from 1/2” plywood with 3/4” birch ply faces in a full overlay style. The grains all match with the drawers to make a nice effect. Full extention slides allow my mother to put whatever she wants in the drawers and get access to them easily.
