I got the plans for this from Wood Magazine and really liked the open style of this bookshelf. It is made of Cherry and a little walnut on the sides. I used a gel stain on the cherry and really liked how it turned out. It was so easy to use but the clean up was a little messy. The construction is “knock-down” with threaded inserts for the top bottom and all the shelves so it is easy to move/reassemble (except for all the books). I had pictures before I loaded all the books on but they were too big to post and I didn’t realize it until too late.

The side slats add a really nice touch. Well done. If the brain is a muscle, then books are its dumbells.

The case looks very nice. To me books just look very cluttery. I would prefer them behind doors. Your case would stand out a lot more with just a few items on each shelf…....and from what I can see, your case deserves to be the focal point, not the books. However it sure does accomplish a lot in the way of storage.
