Coastal Bookcase

With a unique design, the bookcase is fun to build and sure to be a conversation piece in your home.

This unique bookcase takes its inspiration from a rowboat to give you a completely different approach to a classic woodworking project. It’s sure to be a fun addition to a kids’ room or any other room in your home. Since the design is truly nautical, it only made sense to keep this project as consistent with a real boat as we could. And that meant making parts like a “stern thwart” and “gunwales” to stay on theme. Of course, the real kicker is the curved sides that bend gently from the stem post at the top to the stern at the bottom.
