no previous part Part 1 of Question Mark Bookcase series no next part

For this bookcase I had to ask myself a few questions? lol This project is very interesting because of all the radius work, also being a bookcase to look like a question mark. With all this bending and veneering is quite the challenge. I would say that the radius joinery is very time consuming. Also veneering this inside and outside of the top and bottom drums. I would have to say that so far it has been very enjoyable. Thank you for looking, and happy woodworking!!!

Wow! That’s truly amazing! I was wondering till the very end how you’d get books to stack in there, but then I see the shelves. I’m excited to see the final product!
