I'm going to be building a bookcase for a customer and I can't decide if it needs to be fixed to a seperate base or not. Here's a drawing





It'll be free standing, overall dimensions 2 x 2.1 metres x 300mm deep built in 24mm blockboard or ply, with cornice and plinth. It'll be built as 3 seperate units to be fixed on site, as the budget's a bit tight I'd like to build it without a seperate base but this might be a bit risky if the carpeted floor's not level. What do you think?

Hi Manny,
Hi Manny,
( I thought i'd say it twice as your'e working in duplicate :wink: )

FWIW i'd say with the base,

a) better aesthetically

b) easier to level

IMO

Not with you there but anyway thanks - guess I'll go with the base just in case.
