This attractive bookcase proves you don’t have to sacrifice style in favor of straightforward construction.
When designing a project, it’s often difficult to strike the right balance between manageable, time-conscious construction methods and a pleasing appearance. However, this stylish bookcase gets it right on both counts. There are a couple of keys to achieving this perfect compromise. First, a combination of pocket hole joinery and knock-down hardware make the basic assembly quick and painless, yet very sturdy. Add to this a few well-thought-out details and the end result looks pretty impressive.

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.
