Wanted a cabinet to store my woodworking books, built this hanging bookcase, the design is roughly from something I saw on FWW, sized to fit the books on hand and document storage. Walnut with curly maple veneer panels and a french cleat. Cabinet weighs a lot empty, thankful for the concrete walls we have. Thanks for looking!

Man that maple really looks great. Nice job. It looks real sturdy. I like the french cleat hanging system; no worries with that.
