This bookcase was a wedding gift for my nephew and his wife about a dozen years ago. I never anticipated sharing them online all those years ago so the photos are not very good.
I had fun making the moldings, using a number of different router bits on three separate pieces which I assembled to look like one large molding on top. At the time I was using a pre-1950s 8” Yates American tablesaw that I had picked up for $10 at a garage sale and an 8” miter saw wihch was incapable of making an accurate miter so I made 90 degree cuts on the moldings and formed sculpted corner blocks for the top and bottom moldings.
The center shelf is stationery; the others are adjustable. Made from red oak with a 1/4” plywood back, the height matches that of a standard door.
Thanks for looking.
