A recent edition of Wood Magazine offered this design. I pretty much followed their directions as closely as possible. The only thing I changed was that the spine is removable on mine. This item would be very awkward to move when complete as per the plans in the magazine. It turned out pretty good.

Very ironic – i have all of the pieces cut out to make mine but havent started assembly just yet. My spine is going to be walnut and the shelves are osage orange for dramatic contrast. How did you make the spine removable? Did you just screw the entire spine assembly to the base?

I used T-nuts and 3 inch long, 1/4 inch bolts. The T-nuts came in a pack of 4 so I tried to used 4, but I ended up using just 3 which works fine. Look forward to seeing yours.

Very well built and executed. Like the choice of wood color and the joinery. Well done!
