Barrister’s Bookcase

A barrister’s bookcase is a classic design originally design to house volumes of books for barristers (lawyers). But you don’t have to be a lawyer to incorporate this design into your home. The cases are modular and can be stacked in any number and any orientation to suit your space and tastes. The glass doors allow you to see the contents while also protecting your precious books, DVDs and/or collectibles.

The dimensions of the bookcase (stacked three high) are: 34” Wide x 16” High (12 1/2” interior) x 15” Depth (14” interior)

Instructor: Marc Spagnuolo

The project includes:

  • 11 step by step lessons
  • 110 minutes of video instruction

$90.00

    Really love the way this came together, and the modular style. I can definitely see one of these in my future.

  2. Chet (verified owner)

    This was a fun and rewarding project. I though the videos and Sketch Up planes were concise and detailed and really easy to follow. I learned a number of new techniques and skills. It feels good to get the complements we have received when people see it in our house and I owe a lot of that to Marc’s great instruction.

  3. Chris Nicholson (verified owner)

    Awesome project! Great videos with clear, concise plans. I built two for my mom and have had requests from customers for additional builds.

    Another awesome guild build!

  4. Phenrica (verified owner)

    The barristers bookcase is my first WW Guild project and I was blown away by the quality of the video instruction, plans and drawings. I found it straight forward to adjust to meet my requirements and just love the modular approach to this. Another unit will be added at a later date to take it to 4 layers i’m sure. The build has raised interest with a commission being ordered already in Oak or Elm if the timber can be sourced.
    I can’t recommend the Guild enough definitely worth a go, so much so that no 2 project already bought and getting ready to embark on my next adventure ‘the waterfall table’

  5. BarryC (verified owner)

    My first Guild project, and a great choice. Everything was excellent, from the video, sound, instruction and plans. Highly recommended, and I look forward to my next build.
