Shaker bookcase – solid cherry with dovetailed case

This solid cherry Shaker bookcase was built to order for a customer but just as I was getting ready to ship it I discovered that the customer had requested it be 14″ deep.  This one is 12″ deep (the standard depth I usually make it) so it’s now in stock and ready to ship.

Overall dimension are 60″ wide x 60″ high x 12″ deep.  The inside depth of the case is 10 1/2″. There are 4 adjustable shelves on each side.

The top of the bookcase is dovetailed to the sides of the case.

Molding wraps around the front and sides at the top and bottom of the case.  The back of the bookcase is 1/2″ thick cherry veneer plywood.  All other parts of the bookcase are solid cherry.

This bookcase can be ordered online at  (Choose the 60″ double size with 2 additional shelves.
