Low Cherry Bookcase
Start with a basic box made from a single sheet of plywood, then add a few solid frames to get a great-looking bookcase.
When you think of a plywood bookcase, the first thing that usually comes to mind is something you bring home in a cardboard box and slap together in a couple of hours. Well, this design changes all that. By using proven joinery techniques, one sheet of 3/4" plywood, and some cherry facing, it's a simple job to build this bookcase. Plywood keeps the expense down and a cherry face frame gives the bookcase an elegant and classic look.

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.
