here is a thought


i use barrister bookcases

they are well built to hold weight, i have sanded and repaired them, and apply finish to my taste

they are cheaper than buying glass, wood , hardware and your labor.  the price goes from 30 dollar a section, i have found them cheaper at garage sales

they come in different heights, and widths and depths and different types of woods

they keep the dust off and can be stacked to whatever height you want

look for the old ones, not the modern type

just a thought

check out craigs list for them

good luck
