Bookcase

This bookcase is made from oak plywood and hickory trim. It measures just under 4 ft wide, 8 ft tall and 16 in deep. There are 12 shelves, 8 of them are adjustable. I used a combination of Ryobi power tools and Kreg jigs to assemble this bookcase. The rod towards the top is to allow a ladder to be placed against the bookcase for easy access to the higher shelves.

  • Very impressive! Great design, and the addition of the rod for a ladder is a very cool feature! Did you make the rod out of 2x4's?

    • Thank you. With the bookcase height, a ladder seemed appropriate. The rod is just a large dow rod, store bought. The brackets which hold them in place are 1x4 hickory glued together and cut to shape. The rod goes completely through the center bracket but only half way through the end ones and glued to the bookcase.
