    Bookshelf (Design by Strooom)

    Well, this certainly wasn't a project for a rookie. I purchased lots of tools I didn't have and ruined some wood with bad cuts/measurements. It looks pretty darn good and my wife loves it. Now that I know what not to do and have a bit of experience, I think I'll build a smaller one for the office. For people new to this, the instructable is more of a design concept and lacks depth, but in the end, is a very cool project. Thanks Strooom for cool bookshelf in my library.

    Thanks for the reply. Help me understand the spacing. I just picked up 1/2" plywood, so there is an inch, and you said to use 7/8" spacers, so no I'm at 2 7/8" but then you said to use 3" oak finish strips? Aren't I one inch short at this point?

    I love this design, but am faced with a couple challenges. First, measurements are in metric and that just confuses everyone at the lumber store. I converted measurements, but they aren't standard sizes on this side of the pond. Second, no one, and I mean no one sells block board. I like your design and mounting idea, but dang, I wish you were in the USA or I was in your country! I'll figure it out, but it's going to cost more because I'm probably going to have to use plywood.
