Diamond Bookcase

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.
