A little bit of a tweak of a bookcase that my mother found in the Crate and Barrell catalog. She liked the look of a bookcase/room divider she saw but wanted a custom size with thinner shelves. Basically this project amounted to a LOT of edging walnut veneered plywood with solid walnut (double the usual amount since it needs to look the same from both sides in case it’s used as a room divider). I wrapped the plywood pieces with 3/4” thick walnut and used a combination of carefully hidden screws and biscuits to hold this thing together. 4 coats of wipe on poly and it is ready for it’s new home. Pretty basic, but it looks cool. It actually doesn’t look bad in my rec room where I took these photos…maybe I need to build one for myself?!?
