The bookcases are made out of 1" maple plywood. The front edges are trimmed with solid maple bullnose attached by means of a spline. The case is 3' wide by 11.5' tall. The shelves are 9' wide, starting 4' off the floor. Since there is no back, it is tied together with a set of 3/8" X 40" rods running completely through the dividers to prevent sagging.
