Monticello's Stacking Bookcases

These stackable bookcases are based on the shelving that was used to store Thomas Jefferson’s personal library when it was moved to Washington D.C. to start the Library of Congress.

Build several of the individual bookcases, then stack and re-stack them in whatever arrangement you like best. Make a decorative molding at the bottom for a finished look.
