Contemporary Bookcase:

This project is our absolute favorite. It is simple to construct it but, it looks so elegant. Plus it can be customized easily to fit in any space. The shelves are strong and are supported in a straight forward way. This is a simple and no-frills design. The joinery technique used here is amazingly simple. Long threaded rods are used and are concealed inside the pieces and that is what keeps the whole book case together. Here is the link to the project details.
