What started out to be a small little book rack to set on top of my Great Granddaughter's dresser got a little out of hand. Next thing I knew I was searching through my wood supply for enough material to build a very strong book case for a 8 year old with a 3 year old brother. I used my ussual tounge and groove construction. With glue and pocket hole screws for a child proof assembly. Also rounded corners on the top to keep the 3 year old from getting knots in his forhead. Used all oak except for the bottom floor of the case.... Had to use birch there as I ran out of the 3/4" oak plywood. Face frame and top are all soild oak.
