A child’s bookcase rendered in cherry. This project was adapted from a Woodsmith magazine plan. Finished in polyurethane.

You may notice that each shelf pivots on the front shelf pins to enable the shelves to tilt downward.

Thanks for looking.

Very nice, what is the purpose of the swivel, wouldn’t that dump all the books of the shelf?

That is a nice looking book shelf. I like that it is more stable with the wide base. If a child were to try climbing it, it would likely not tip on them.

The shelves can be slightly tilted down toward the floor from the back where the shelf back will prevent anything from rolling off. The purpose of this design, as I understand it, is so that the shelf can hold toys, balls, etc., as well as books. I thought it a pretty ingenious design.
