Custom Bookcase Construction
Woodcraft offers the beauty of solid wood construction in four wood species; Pine, Maple, Oak and Cherry. They are built to stand the test of time with real wood construction. Eight styles are offered to fit your taste and budget.
Bookcases are made very sturdy material, including 3/4" thick solid wood face frames and moulding, 3/4" thick furniture-grade plywood sides and shelves, and 1/4" thick furniture-grade plywood backs. The outer layer of plywood is made of the same wood species as the solid face frames. NO particle board is used.
Bookcases 48" or wider require a center divider to provide added stability to the unit and ensure that the shelves will not bow under the weight of very heavy books or objects. Bookcases converted to a hutch (with no bottom) require installation of a fixed shelf for stability. When a hutch is 48"W or wider, there will be no adjustable shelves under the fixed shelf, since they would be too long to provide adequate support.
Add lower or upper doors or drawers mounted on metal European-style drawer glides or choose optional full extension ball bearings glides available on bookcases 30” or taller.
