Once completed you just bolt them together. Bookcase plan features adjustable shelves and two options for the top a decorative gable (shown in photo) or a traditional flat-style top. We used a tight-grained cherry and cherry plywood for its subtle grain pattern. For the back we used 1/4 inches cherry plywood. When it came time to apply a finish, we decided to use a cherry stain. I wanted the rich reddish-brown color without waiting for the aging process. And using stain would even out the color differences between the lighter sapwood and darker hardwood. Overall dimensions are 91 inches high x 43 inches wide x 14 inches deep. This project appeared in Woodsmith magazine No. 95.
