Curved Front Bookcase
The gently curving sides of this bookcase give it a sophisticated look. But you'll be pleasantly surprised at how easy it goes together.
As much as I enjoy a challenge, I have to admit that every now and then it’s nice to build a simple, straightforward project. And with it’s clean lines and basic design, that’s exactly what this bookcase is. The construction is also straight - forward. It uses quick-connect fasteners, so there’s no complicated joinery to deal with. And it’s made almost entirely out of plywood, so you don’t have to spend a lot of time gluing up solid-wood panels. But in spite of its simplicity, this project will still throw you a curve — two curves, in fact. If you take a look at the photo, you’ll see that the sides of the bookcase have a grace - ful curve along the front edge.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
