I made this bookcase for my wife specifically for her genealogy books and stuff. The two drawers at the top hold her maps and other things that need to be rolled up. My daughters convinced her that it was too nice to be in her den and should be moved to the living room.
I now have to make a “living room” bookcase because my wife wants this back in her den.
It all solid poplar, dovetailed top, bottom and the base. The shelves are held in dadoes and I used miller dowels to hold them in place. I bought the lumber S3S and I did almost all of the work with hand tools only. I used a jig saw and a pattern router to do the step side profiles. The next one I’m going to try and do hand tool only.
