31-MD-00477 - Build-In-A-Weekend Bookcase Woodworking Plan.
Solid wood and simple moldings make a fitting home for books and collectibles. You will love the traditional styling and no-nonsense construction of this project. To help speed the bookcase through your shop, we provide a mail-order source for the bun feet. But, should you want to turn your own feet, we have included a full-size pattern. And, you can give the bookshelf a touch of your own personal style by simply choosing a different foot and routing a different profile on the face-frame stiles.

Workshop Article included:

4 easy bookcase options - We discuss and detail with drawings different design choices on the final look of the bookcase.

BONUS PLAN included:

A quick and easy straight tracking crosscut jig for your table saw.
