Solid Birch bookcase I built for my 12yr. old grandson. It has 4 shelf areas and a total of 8 adjustable shelves.  Has 4 1/2" hidden storage area at top and 3 1/2" at bottom. (See other pictures)  I used regular shelf rail strips, routed the strip of the fixed sides to enable the rail to be inset flush. I notched each shelf so that the shelf clips set inside the notches. This keep the shelves from sliding out. The shelves in the two top sections are the same size as the two bottom sections…

Love this.  Need to get a style that we could eventually build a pergola above the gate entry.

Entrance from driveway to back yard traditional landscape - if we ever do a fence, I love this pergola gate!

Top part of the cabinet belonged to my wife's grandmother.  It is estimated to be well over 100 years old. I stripped, hand-sanded, stained and sealed it to help preserve it.  My brother-in-law law built the base cabinet, then I refinished it.  ~

Isn't this Bohemian garden terrace sweet? Someday, the vast wasteland that is my back yard will have lovely spaces like this. Or, maybe, I will just dream.
