Custom bookcase set

The major project we hired a carpenter to do for us was to make four bookshelves.  We love books.  We also love games and Pepper loves puzzles.  Our collection of all three had really outgrown the single bookcase and two cabinets that we have from the school and the landlord.  So we decided to order our own.

I knew I wanted them to not be too large individually.  I wanted some versatility — stackable is what I guess I was looking for.  So I designed two components.  The bottom one has three compartments.  The bottom is 16 inches tall and the next two are 12 inches tall.  Yesterday the carpenter finished those two units so we moved them inside and loaded them up with our games and puzzles.

We’ll probably be able to move some things around after the top two pieces are done.  The bottom two shelves on them are 12 inches tall and the top two are almost ten inches tall. In total the four pieces will be eight feet wide and just under eight feet tall.
