Front-facing Child's Bookcase

Front-facing Child's BookcaseIt's hard to believe my son is 7 years old since I built this bookshelf for him, but if there's one project that continues to get a lot of use it's this bookshelf… I made it out of one sheet of furniture-grade plywood and that cost me about $40 back then.I've seen pictures of similar front-facing bookshelves, but I wanted to design one myself. It took a little while to figure out how things would go together, but I'm totally satisfied with the result. I even made use of the open back by adding some shelves to store unused books. The top is a nice shelf to put things like a clock, pictures, etc.If I made one again I think I'd use a sprayer to paint it. From what I remember it wasn't easy to paint with a brush, let alone with two different colors. But it really did turn out great and still gets used 7 years later.

I wrapped the end in wax paper and then tied the tube on one leg and then tightly wrapped it around the top. It worked great.

If anyone ever sees that, they're looking too closely. I spend a lot of time looking at antique furniture, often from below. My interest is pieces made about 100 years ago, from the Arts & Crafts period of the early …Source

Carbide Mini-scraper

Furnished content.
(from Popularwoodworking.com)


A friend needed a small tool to clean out glue inside small places. So I made him a mini-scraper using an indexable blade from my planer, screwed to a turned handle. Each blade is about $3, plus the screw and …Source
