Repurposed Bi-fold Doors
two bi-fold wood doors that I picked up at the Restore.
Pocket Hole Joinery
I attached a 1 x 4 to the bottom front in the same way.
Attach The Back of the Bookcase
The shelves I made by gluing and clamping together 1 x pine boards. I had to notch out the back corner of each shelf with my jig saw. The shelves were all secured to the bookcase with glue and nails.

Add Trim to Bookcase
Because of the way the bi-fold doors are designed there was a gap between the crown and the middle part of the top of the door. I filled it by gluing and nailing a ¼" dowel to the door. Don't you think it ties in with the bead of the bead board?
