DIY Bookcase

Ray needed a bookcase. He had been making do with planks of wood on bricks, but he wanted something nicer now. His sister, Sandy, suggested buying a self-assembly bookcase where the pieces came in a flat pack for him to put together himself. Ray knew he wasn’t much good at that sort of thing but he decided to give a shot. When he opened the pack it all looked very confusing but he was determined to get to grips with it. After a couple of hours he had something that looked a bit like a bookcase but was rather wobbly. To be on the safe side, he asked Sandy to check it for him. There is something not quite right about this, she said. ‘ I think we’d better get to the bottom of it before you put your books on it
