Hello Folks! This week’s project is an easy, pocket hole bookcase. I sized it so that it would fit into a small space in my room which is great because not that many people have a bunch of extra space these days. The color I went with was Minwax Early American as I was trying to color match my wife’s bedroom furniture. I think it turned out alright. Here is a link to the SketchUp video as well as the project build itself. Thanks for watching and have a great weekend!

Don’t forget to watch it in HD!

Everyone wants more shelf space. Great project.

Nice video, great bookcase. Listening to you in your video finally convinced me to learn the keyboard shortcuts for SketchUp instead of mousing to the menu box. Wow, does that improve productivity or what?

Very nice!

Reminds me of a bookcase I made a while back.

That turned out really good. Like the stain and simple design. Great extra storage. Well done!
