Today on Modern Builds: How to build a mid century modern bookcase out of 3/4″ maple plywood. I used limited tools to create this simple woodworking project so that it can be replicated and modified. If you’re interested in building this bookshelf, follow the link to the written article on my website where I have free plans including a cut list and other helpful tips and measurements.

  1. If you want to build it yourself, just google Woodglut. I know you will find good solutions for all your ideas.

  2. This is an awesome build. This is going to be my first project. When we are locating the holes for kreg drill, what's the guide, how far away from the top and left, right should we offset
    What's the small little tool you used for tapping the predrill?
    For the modern feet, you had to get a second sheet of maple? and the kreg screws are the same 1-1/4?'

  3. I have let some of my woodwork colleagues know about this site [Link Here== TopFineWoodworking. Com ]. I was especially awed in the wake of experiencing the outlines and plans that were incorporated into the bundle. This is the best item for any woodwork devotee and shed manufacturer out there.?

  4. Thanks for this. I made one but changed it up a little from your design. Took 4 1/2 hours including danish oiling it. I made he base/legs smaller and a bit thicker and its strong as a tank! thanks again

  5. Instead of making that wonderful and intricate base, do you think installing taper legs to the base with angled leg mounting plates would be sturdy enough to hold the entire thing up if it is mostly filled with books?
    Thanks! Love the video
