Strong, yet easy-to-make joinery and an attractive design combine to create plenty of storage.
This bookcase has plenty of room to display books or other treasures and do it with great style. It’s designed so that it can sit either horizontally or vertically to conform perfectly to your space. All you need to do is change the location of the feet. Although the case looks like a series of diamonds assembled by connecting square boxes, it’s really built from a series of panels. The panels are joined with tongue and dado joinery that come together to form diamond-shaped openings. Some of the openings, or "cubbies," have back panels to add stability to the case. Plus, you can add beveled shelves in the openings and across the top to create different storage options.

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.
