70 – How to Build a 6 ft. Standard Cherry Bookcase 4K

Comprehensive set of 3D plans: https://kingsfinewoodworking.com/collections/project-plans-for-sale/products/standard-bookcase-6-tall-2-wide-3d-plans

This is a project that we built for a client. It is a 6 foot tall Standard Bookcase made from Cherry. It also is built with a single sheet of ¾’ Combination plywood, (which is an engineered plywood that has a veneer core sandwiched between 2 layers of MDF, then outer layers of flat sawn cherry), and it consists of a solid cherry top and trim. The project features adjustable shelves, and in addition to being 6’ tall, it is 2 feet wide, and 1’ in depth.
This is a fantastic project that is a lot of fun to build and doesn’t need a lot of skill. Having a table saw helps a lot, but not a lot of tools are needed to complete it. Plus everyone needs a bookcase or two.
