Craftsman Style Bookcase

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Craftsman Style BookcaseI mostly followed a set of plans to build this bookcase which I don't normally do, but I wanted to be true to the style and the plans were so close to what I had in mind anyway. I altered a few details. For example, I did not use shelf pins to support the shelves. I figured out where I wanted them and built in supports permanently at that height. Adjustable shelves are for store bought bookcases.The wood is sapele which I haven't worked with before. I liked it, but it tears out when going through the planer, so a lot of sanding was involved. The piece is not stained, it just has polyurethane semi-gloss on it. The wood darkens considerably with just that clear coat.

Lathe Tool Cabinet

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Lathe Tool CabinetMy tool holder previous to this was hung behind my lathe so I had to reach over the lathe to get or return a tool. It dawned on me that this was an injury waiting to happen.

Took an end section from one of my first furniture projects from the 70's added a base with wheels repurposed from another item, some top braces, a hardboard cover. Then built the top cabinet from old paneling and 2by4's. Cut the old center drawer from the desk down to make 2 small sliding boxes (photo 5) inside the desk section drawers. Only expenses were the 4 hinges and hasp.
