A Bookshelf for Bookworms

Redditor rariya posted this series of photos documenting the construction of a curvy bookshelf called Bookworm, which she designed and built as an assignment for class. According to her comments, the shelf is made of pine and is finished with linseed oil. It took about 35-40 hours to construct and she paid $165 for materials, though her school provided the wood glue, which she used a lot of. I love the design and and it’s interesting to see the build process through such a detailed set of photos. Nice work, rariya!
