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.
