What to do with those old encyclopedia's? Make a book case!! ENCYCLOPEDIA BOOKCASES Typically built from sets of encyclopedias over a framework of recycled wood, these freestanding cases may be filled with books. They are as strong as any wooden case. Shelves maybe fixed at any height, not adjustable. All are built to order so that the color and dimensions suit your room.
I work at Half Price Books, and I've been trying to find out what to do with all the books we can't resell or donate. And then this beautiful set of large print encyclopedias came in - and what can I say, I fell in love with them! :D Because I needed more shelves for my piles of books, I figured it couldn't hurt to try this. I'm pretty happy with the results but I had to redo several things.The picture below is a recent one. (As of November 2008) It's held up really well!
