First of all, sorry but my english is not so good.
I’m a 25 year old woodworker, in my free time, from Belgium.
I made this bookcase for a colleague of my father.
It’s made out of 30mm (5/4”) mdf.

The back is made out of 5 pieces of 8mm (1/4”) mdf.
This bookcase was difficult too make because the customer didn’t wanted too see screws or anything else.
I know, on the left side you can see some screws, but this side is placed against a wall.
It’s difficult for me too explain the joints but in the future I will post some pictures of how I did it.
I didn’t used glue or just for the wooden dowels.
The bookcase was build up at my home and then take apart again to rebuild it again in the house of the customer. All my cabinets are build detachable.

Again, you mention your English. Forget about it, it’s perfect!

Very nice craftsmanship.
