I made this desktop book case to house a few of my wifes ever growing manga collection. So all my measurements are designed to hold these slightly larger than paperback books they just happen to be almost identical in size to DVD cases. You may not have manga but most folks have DVD's so this hould still be helpful.

Special thanks to Daryl Kaswinkel for a sketch that inspired this book case.

There are two sections to this build:
1. Making the boxes
2. Making the frame the boxes rest in

Don't use your saw without the propper equipment, training and always make sure you follow the safety instructions to prevent kickback.

Step 1: Materials

One 2x4 sheet of 1/2 inch MDF board (Medium Density Fiberboard)
Two 2x4 sheet of 1/4 inch MDF board

Table Saw
Miter Gague
Angle Clamps
Paint Brushes

<p>All I can say is wow, you put me to shame with that bookcase!</p>
Thanks!!&nbsp; I&nbsp;honestly really like that yours can be standalone, and could be against a wall on a desk etc..&nbsp; Very innovative to have a stand..&nbsp;
And if one were so inclined they can use the inside of the stand for storage and with a peg and another piece of board could even make a secret door....
