Materials: BILLY bookcase

I took the shorter Billy book shelf and using the materials made two 2-part cabinets.

I constructed the 16 drawers from reclaimed boards and glued cedar to the top of each cabinet to match the drawer fronts and to give it a nice top that would hide the particle board ends.

The 2 stands are also made using reclaimed wood.
