Classic Modular Bookcase

The bookcases on page 22 of Woodsmith No. 170 are a great way to add a lot of storage space to any room. For the open bookshelf units, I used 1/4" walnut shelf supports from Rockler (33902). And I purchased the cabinet leveler brackets (01S04.01), leveler feet (01S06.02), 1/4"-20 x 13mm threaded inserts (00N11.13), 1/4"-20 x 30mm quick-connect bolts (00N16.30), and 1/4"-20 x 50mm quick-connect bolts (00N16.50) from Lee Valley.

If you're adding drawers and doors, you'll need some additional hardware. The stem bumper glides for the drawers are from Rockler (28373). The rest of the hardware came from Lee Valley. This includes the bin pulls (02W30.28), mushroom knobs (02W30.24), antique brass no-mortise hinges (00H51.02), plastic retainer clips (00S07.02), magnetic catches (01L05.20), #4 x 1/2" Fh antique brass screws (01Z10.41), and #4 x 1/2" Ph antique brass screws (01Z20.41).

Finish information: We used 2 parts Cherry, 1 part dark oak. Note about Woodkote Jeld Stains - Be sure to allow stain to dry at least 24 hours or an applied finish may pull the pigment back out and cause finish problems.
