As common in law offices today as they were 100 years ago, traditional lawyer’s bookcases are designed for storing expensive law books. Traditionally made of oak, the style is characterized by individual stacking compartments, or cases, fronted by glass doors. Use our lawyer’s bookcase plans to make your new project easy.

The doors allow for total visibility while protecting each case’s contents from dust and dirt. This do-it-yourself version shares the classic features of the originals, making it ideal for displaying books or almost anything else. Like the originals, the project is built one case at a time (following the same steps each time) and stacked.

The completed lawyer’s bookcase measures five feet tall by four feet wide by one foot deep if you adhere to the lawyer’s bookcase plans. As pictured, the bottom case measures 16 inches tall, the top one is 12 inches tall and the two middle cases are 14 inches tall, but the combination is up to the builder.

    A couple years ago I came across these plans in your woodworkers magazine . I decided to build a set for my woodworking magazines and books,and some shooting magazines and books. Well by the time I was halfway done my wife decided they were for her. One set is now in the kitchen with some china in it. Oh well I built a second set for me and put all my books in it. They were made from oak with an early American stain. They look great. And really simple to build. I would build another set but I have no place to put it right now. Thanks for the plans. I look forward to each new issue.
