|vantrap||I think bookcase looks great and if it fits and works,that is what counts in a dorm.|

|Microsuffer||There is, beyond the functional appreciation, a great deal of sentimental attachment. My daughters each treasure any wood project I make for them. That bookcase is still jealously protected and in use though the owner has long since left school and is married. The alarm clock has moved to a new location, but the bookcase is chock full of favorite books.|

Hi Microsuffer |
Not only did you make a fine piece of furniture, you created functionality that will last many years and serve your daughter well, maybe it will move down to your grandchildren.

|mcsmc||Very nice. It's crazy how something as simple as a bookshelf can make or break a room.|

|Microsuffer||Sometimes you do something for the visual appeal and sometimes the appeal sort of comes in unexpectedly from the effort to do something practical. This was more of the latter. And even so, the art was sort of in the wood and I just noticed it there.|

|DanSullivan||Cool look & clever design ... those college dorm rooms demand a little imagination & I'm sure this was the nicest piece of furniture in the building!|

Thanks All, |
All complements go straight to my head. The biggest compliment that I've received to date was from another daughter who complained that I hadn't done anything like that for her. That's a problem I like having.
The bottom shelf was a partly style choice to suggest that the top assembly was 'just' sitting on the base. The top was such a tall, almost overpowering element, that I wanted a bit of a distraction. This also made it easier to build and assemble, a real consideration as I was, and still am, something of a novice in wood.
