32 Year Old Billy Bookcases? [member edit]

In this one I’m continuing to remodel my home office, this time with #Ikea #Billy bookcases that are 32 years old, and as well as explaining why, I take you on a detailed tour of the whole process, including the best way to pull a Billy bookcase apart for reuse, and a simple jig to keep shelf heights consistent!

No, I’m not turning into an #IkeaHack channel, but sometime you need to take the path of least resistance just to get things done. Enjoy!
