Kentwood bookshelf

My gal loved the way this bookshelf turned out. It was my first time building it and if/when I'm commissioned to build another one, I'll likely use wainscotting for the back instead of knotty pine which is 3/4" thick. just made the back a little bulky for my taste. I also would've taken the time to put the pocket holes where the shelves were going to be so I didn't have the different tint of stain on the plugs. Would've been an easy thing to do, but I wasn't thinking ahead at that moment, I guess.


Great plan, Ana. Thanks for the resource!
