My father and I built this bookcase based on plans from the New Yankee Workshop. It was my first experience making a piece of furniture. Oak plywood carcass and solid oak face frame and trim. I opted to make the shelves fixed rather than adjustable. Finished with Minwax Early American stain and polyurethane. The shelves are loaded full with books without any deflection.

i love the design. I hate seeing a bookshelf sag due to poor design, I’m glad to hear yours don’t. nice work!
