This is my latest project and in doing it, I got to build on some skills learned by doing my standing desk. After spending a little while working on some plans for a barrister bookcase and it never looking quite right, I decided to give up and use some plans from Wood magazine. At the time, I thought I was settling, but it grew on me as I built it and now I’m glad I went with it. It’s just birch ply and poplar trim. Pretty much all you can get for a reasonable price where I am without driving a couple of hours. Joinery is pocket holes (pretty much as easy as you can get though on my next project I’m going to try something with a higher skill level) with shopmade plugs.
The first couple of pictures show the case in my garage and some detail of the trim along the top. The third picture is the bookcase in my office and the fourth picture shows the case next to the desk. The last picture shows a coat rack that I threw together from some of the scraps. I can’t figure out why some of the pictures are sideways…sorry about that. Just turn the monitor on it’s side when those come up.
