Heavy Duty Bookcases
So, i have a decent amount of books, most of them hardcovers. They tend to weigh a bit. I'm getting tired of buying the fake wood bookcases you see at Walmart and everywhere else. The shelves always bow in the middle eventually, and to top it off our clumsy dog has ran into/hit/side swiped the large star wars blueprint book on the bottom enough times to push the backing partially off. The book case is now leaning and will eventually fall over. Pets. Yay.
So what does everyone here use to store their books? I've seen some real wood cases online that cost $600 and more. I'd like to spend less than that if possible. I did find ONE real wood bookcase at Ashley Furniture for $400. Its ok looking, but would get the job done. And no, making my own isn't an option. I just figured there HAS to be more relatively lower priced real wood bookcases somewhere that I'm just missing.
Also, what about those industrial steel bookcases? Anyone use one of those?
