If you are looking for an easy way to build a large, stylish bookcase, this woodworking plan might be perfect for you. The concept behind the design for this bookcase was to combine simple construction methods, some visually interesting design elements along with basic materials. The bookcase is made from poplar, birch plywood, MDF and pine moldings. Because the bookcase was painted, I could mix in these various materials based on their best use – example: 1/2 inch thick MDF for the simulated side panels and pine stop molding to trim out these panels.
I utilized dado and rabbet joinery to form the separate upper and lower cases. Pocket screws and glue were used to create the face frames. Otherwise, most of the joinery was accomplished with a brad nailer and glue; pretty simple.
Here is a preview of the woodworking plan showing just a few pages…
- The bookcase measures seven feet tall by five feet wide and is 13 1/2 inches deep.
- The plan contains 13 pages with multiple exploded views and illustrations.
