Topic tags/keywords: bookcase bookshelf table top

Trying to find some table top bookshelves/bookcases to get some ideas. I have a baby attorney who just passed the bar exam and I’d like to make her a little table top case for all her new rule books to keep them handy. I did a search of our site and did not see much. Do any of you have one you’ve done or have a good book with ideas to recommend? Will keep looking on the net—- but thought I’d give my fellow LJ’s a chance.

Thanks for any help.

This one is made up of modules so one of them could easily sit on a desk.

Thanks Mot and MsDebbie. I’ve not been on line much lately so just now getting back to this. What I’m looking for is more along the lines of a small bookrack. I’ve seen one that I can’t find plans for. The best I can describe it as a sliding/adjustable rack. Two ends that are about 10 inches high – 4 rails sliding along each other. If i was better at design and proportions I could probably just design one. Alas – I stink at my own designs. I want to say I saw it on a schools website but I’ve looked and looked and looked with no luck.

Thanks for trying though. I’m going to keep looking.
