Featuring a classic look with plenty storage, this two-tone finished bookcase is sure to look at home in almost any room in the house.
With this beautifully designed bookcase you can see how some small details and the right molding treatments can take an ordinary bookcase and make it look special. The first thing that catches your eye is the two-tone finish. While the top cap and back panel have a cherry finish, the rest of the bookcase is painted. This allows inexpensive poplar lumber to be used on the face frame and moldings. The stiles on the front of the case have evenly spaced stopped flutes. We’ll show you how to make them in the shop with a handheld router and a simple-to-build jig.

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.
