book shelf
2nd shot of book shelf

Just finished this project, 10 feet high x 15 feet wide. It was done in poplar and faux painted. All shelves are adjustable and the front is wainscoting. What bookshelf would not be complete without a 62” flat screen tv?

Haven’t figured out sketch up, when I do I’ll try to get something up shortly.

You might want to check into this, but I believe the contest actually involves turning in sketches or plans of a project.

If you have any, you might want to post pictures of those, as well…

Wow. That is a bookcase. I don’t think I have enough books to fill it up.

Thanks for the post.
