I was looking for something for my son's room that would last him until college, so I adapted your plans and added hooks and a bench and stained it.  Bookends are all we are missing to make it perfect. He loves it, and I don't think he will be able to break it.  I could use a suggestion for anchoring it to the wall, though. Thank you for the great, easy-to-follow plan!

Your bookshelf and bench look really nice and sturdy!  I'm sure it will hold up for many years.  As far as anchoring it to a wall, I have had luck with anti-tip furniture straps.  I would use several and anchor them right to the studs.  I also use long, self tapping construction screws instead of the screws that come in the package.

A great bookshelf for the student. The workplace has a big impact on student productivity and should be very comfortable. When I studied, I had a desk like this and it was very comfortable for me to write my essays. Now I work in educational service, and I can say with confidence that essay bot reviews are legit. When you're going to buy a college essay, there is more than the cost which you need to pay. There are certain things you will need to take into account whenever you're in the market for one.
