While you may not think it’s true, just about everyone is an avid reader. Sure, maybe you aren’t leafing through Faulkner, Shakespeare or Poe… but woodworkers have collections of woodworking magazines and books, wannabe chefs have their cookbooks, gear heads have their auto repair manuals…
So, needless to day, one of the most important pieces of furniture in any house is a bookcase – somewhere to stash all those books! Book cases can run the gamut from fancy to plain, difficult to build or easy afternoon projects… take your pick.
