I made this book case for our home office in the ‘70s. The house was being sold in 2013 when these pictures were taken. We had full thickness cedar left over from another job. The top and frame are a full 2”.Only the doors and drawer fronts are plywood. The floor is 12” Bruce prefinished oak. Turned out nice but never again, way too much cutting and fitting.

Looks like it would have held a lot of books.

I love the way it looks. I bet it WAS a lot of work cutting and fitting. Beautiful result.
