035 Basic Bookcase: A simple design and an easy build
This is a very basic yet elegant bookcase with a closed cupboard in the lower half or is it?. The bookcase stands just over six foot with the crown molding, 32 inches wide and 13 1/4″ deep. Constructed using veneer core plywood and finished with a solid wood trim. The whole unit can be built for a minimal cost yet appear as a very expensive piece of furniture. You could easily change the back panel from plywood to a ship-lap back if you wanted to add to the overall appearance. You could change the shelves from wood to glass and add lighting in the upper unit which would turn a normal bookcase into a beautiful display case. The upper case has two adjustable shelves and the lower section has one. Top this off with a beautiful crown molding and you have a fine quality piece of furniture.
