Both power and handtools were used throughout construction.

Thanks for looking.

Cutting in mortise for the shelves into the legs.

Test fitting.

Ship lapped back.

QSWO and pegged joint

Top rail with curly QSWO

Finished in shop

At home in the living room.

Nice looking bookshelf. What stain did you use? Has a nice color to it..
I am just completing the woodwork on the lower section of a bookcase made from Quarter sawn white oak, one of my favorite woods to work with.

Very, very nice. I too noticed the color…..very appropriate for the piece and wood.
Nice job.

Lovely piece in a lovely home! Did you also build or refinish the house’s woodwork as well?

I hope your finish is drool-proof. Fits nicely with the rest of your decor. I might have to try that finishing recipe. Thanks!

I have loved this piece since I saw it it an old book. Any chance of getting a cut list or rough dimensions on the legs, etc.? Great job.
