A Classic Bookcase in the Craftsman Style
Wedged tenons and clean lines dignify this oak original
The bookcase that Gary Rogowski explains how to make in this article is just 50 in. high and 31 in. wide, and it represents Arts-and-Crafts style in its joinery and wood. He shows techniques for cutting mortises with a plunge router and template, and cutting through, wedged tenons with great holding powe. Rogowski offers additional details on profiles, toe kicks, and wedges, and a detailed project plan shows all the required parts and dimensions. You also get advice on assembly and glue-up.
