Custom 3 Shelf Kentwood Bookshelf

Submitted by tlyles1 on Fri, 10/17/2014 - 06:34

My wife needed a new bookshelf in her classroom so I took this plan and customized it.  She wanted three shelves and to be able to fit a three ring binder on the shelves upright.  I mitered the top to have a finished edge all the way around the top.  I ripped about 1/4" off the back of the two middle shelves so I could put the back planking inside and flush.  I patterened 1x2's and 1x4's on the back to give a cool look.
