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.
