Puzzle Bookcase

Assembly Required. The great thing about this storage puzzle is all the many ways there are to solve it. Use the bookcases (assemble in left or right versions) as singles to draw attention to their zigzag design, or align two together from either side for a totally different effect. A set of rectangular connectors can bridge two bookcases to create one larger unit that "expands" to your dimensions. You can even connect them at an angle. Also available in maple.
