This stylish bookcase consists of a large center case flanked by two smaller cases. You can build all three or just the main case.
With its "step-back" construction, glass-panel doors, and bold finish, this bookcase begs to be noticed. Despite its elegant look, this bookcase is easy to build. At its essence, it's nothing more than three plywood boxes put together with tongue and dado joints. The fine-furniture feel of the project is provided by solid-wood face frames, hardwood backs, and glass-panel doors.

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.
