I built a couple bookcases for my boys, they were in dire need of some vertical storage in their rooms. I wanted to design a bookcase that would be functional, so not only to have adjustable shelving but to include some small drawers as well. A lot of this project is constructed with reclaimed materials. For example, the shelving is solid birch from an old dining room table. The drawers are made from scrap 1/2 birch plywood. The back is 1/4” luan. This was important because at the time I built these I had just been laid off from my job of 23 years (back in 2009).
Instead of concealing the fact that the drawers are plywood, I decided to put the plys on display, and I have to say I really like the look.
It was a fun project to put together, and it was cost effective as well.
A measured drawing is available here.
