I had lots of books and stuff laying on the floor of my office because I had not found a suitable book case to buy. I decided to make my own instead for less than $100 using my Ryobi tools and Kreg fasteners. Pretty pleased with the result.

  • Could you please give details on the type and thickness of wood used? Looks very nice, would like to give it a try.

    • 3/4 inch Birch plywood from Home Depot. Birch iron on edge banding as well. I used a Walnut color stain to give it the period look. Fastened with Kreg pocket-hole joinery and then pluged the holes also. Thanks MtlTidBits and good luck!

  • Awesome turn out! This modern design looks really great- love the blending of mid-century elements. It looks great in the space.
