  1. Oak Book Shelf

    A Quick Build for my Daughter who requested a Bookshelf for her classroom, Made from 1/4" quarter sawn white Oak Plywood and 1/4 sawn white Oak Solid Wood. I really do not like working with plywood! Not perfect by a long shot, but hopefully she will like it? Cannot believe what wood is costing...
  2. Easy Book Shelf

    This is the first project I built that actually made it into the house. It's a simple bookshelf plan from a PW Arts & Crafts Furniture book. It's red oak. The shelves are all single boards, so no laminating was required. All the joints are mortise and tenon, 24 joints in all. Lots of...
  3. Book Shelf

    I built this bookshelf when my wife and I bought our house for somewhere to store movies and display pictures and different knick knacks. It was a quick build just to have some shelves, but has been a nice permanent piece of furniture in our living room for the last 2 1/2 years! It is built...
  4. Wine Bottle Bookshelf

    I needed some quick space to store an ever growing collection of school books and wanted to do so on a budget. I'm definitely not claiming originality here as I'm sure I have seen something similar elsewhere I'm just not sure where that was. I had to build this while living in an apartment...
  5. Unique Poplar Bookshelf Georgian Cherry Finish

    This was a fun project to build, a little tedious at times but I really liked the end result and the Georgian cherry gel stain. Solid Poplar bookshelf Pocket-hole Joinery Georgian Cherry Gel Stain with General Finish semi gloss Polyurethane
  6. Bookshelf Wine Rack for Bottles Large and Small

    I built this wine rack about a year ago for our vacation home. It sits within a book shelf that is built in to the end of the kitchen island. It is a typical lattice construction wine rack, but the dimensions have been adjusted so that each slot will hold the three most common wine bottles...
  7. First attempt at a book shelf

    So a couple days after building the gate, on the heels of my win with the gate my beautiful wife Sara asked me to build her a book case and I jumped at the chance to try again. And here it is.
  8. Bookcase/Gate for Wide Opening Between Rooms

    We have a wide opening between the kitchen area and family room in our home. Sometimes we want our dogs to stay in one of those areas. When we moved in a few years ago we put in a wide baby gate but the dogs finally wiped it out trying to go through the narrow opening side by side too many...
  9. Mom's big bookcase

    This is a bookshelf that I built for my mom. This is also the first project I "designed" from scratch. The shelves needed to be at least 14" apart because mom has a lot of huge books that needed a place to live. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures during construction or even before I...
  10. Mother In Law's Recipe Book Case

    My mother in law asked me to build a book case for her recipe books. I'm a bit new to woodworking, so I had to really think this out. I started the project out with pine 1×10 for the sides and shelves. (I'm a poor woodworker, and lust for the day when I can use the exotic stuff.) I dado'ed the...
  11. Book cases.....with matching media center completed earlier

    A few months ago we completed a media center with an old vent cover placed in a door. After many delays we have finished the matching bookcases that complete the set and fit on either side of the cabinet. The pieces are made with reclaimed wood from old barns in the north Georgia area. The...
  12. Book Rack

    Here is a little book rack I made for my wife to hold her cookbooks. I saw it in a book and was trying to practice making different joints. Made out of pine with a honey stain applied. Pretty much everything I make is out of pine. Maybe one day I'll have enough money to try and make...
  13. Book Shelf

    This is an old book shelf that I refinished. It has been in my Moms office for about 20+ years and it had the worst plastic stick on sheet that did not even cover all of the wood plus it was pilling up in areas. the bottom shelf had considerable water damage and was to far gone so I just removed...
  14. Maple and Red Oak Ladder Shelf

    A Christmas gift for my daughter, she likes things that are plain and simple, and this is about as simple a book shelf design as I could think of. I mixed maple and red oak to give it a little interest. She did love it.
  15. Surprise Swap- Office Set

    Thanks to GR8HUNTER heading up the band Surprise Swap 2020 has come to an amazing conclusion. The stuff that was received by all looks great and seems to be a huge hit. I had the pleasure of sending my stuff off to a Bill Berklich. A big thanks to him for posting nice reveal pics as well since...
  16. oak bookcase

    This is a bookcase I recently completed for a client. Nothing too fancy here. The real challenge came when the client requested that I make the bookcase 4' wide. In order to prevent sagging I had to divide the lower section into three compartments, 2 closed cabinets with fixed shelves and the...
  17. Fantasy book shelf

    Manzanita legs, juniper shelves, and hours of inlay work. 25 different turquoise inlays over all. Joining all this, to function as a level book shelf, felt more like sculpting instead of assembling. Difficult but rewarding.
  18. simple white shelf

    Simple white book shelf for my daughter's room. Used the Kregg Jig for this project, I'm in love! It makes quick work of joinery, and the joints are strong. Made out of 1/2" ply with a hard board backer.
  19. Desk Book Rack
