I built this for my daughter’s room. Made of birch plywood.

I also made a dresser to match the bookshelf (I will post that once I get the knobs on it)

Re: lots of steaming ?
No steam at all… 1/4” birch plywood and lots of glue and claps.

Awesome Job! Really nice design!

I got with your project because I’m looking for a Book shelf design for my Daughter. You said you use 1/4 ply and lots of glue and clamps, Could you share some pictures of the construction, face frame, clamping , etc.

Your project is one of my favorites now. Can not wait to build one for my princess.

Best Regards.
