Hey all. I am very new to woodworking. The only project I have completed so far is my workbench, which I basically followed plans for. I have decided to design my second project from scratch.
I just got a table saw for Christmas, and decided my next project should be a bookcase, for the seemingly hundreds of books we somehow have.
My question: Is there a rule of thumb for the relationship between project height and base dimensions? I seem to be liking a tall narrow bookcase, and am wondering how unstable it will be.
(Current design is ~ 80” tall, and 25” x 12”, no tapering or anything.)
