Here’s a project that’s a lot easier than it may look and when completed provides a sturdy, great-looking placefor your favorite books.
• It’s simple to build because all the pieces are screwed together, and store-bought moldings artfully cover the screwheads. There are no dado or dowel joints.
• After studying the measured drawing, you can adjust the length, depth or height to suit your specific needs. You can also use a different wood besides the oak or pine recommended in this project.
This bookcase gives intermediate woodworking students the opportunity to learn a number of important, basic skills, including measuring, cutting, marking, drilling, gluing, clamping and mitering. And after you build the bookcase, you’ll learn how to apply stains and finishes to protect the wood and keep it looking beautiful.
