Even in a digital age, there's something appealing about books. And, if you're reading this website, you already know that one of the greatest things about books is they give us yet another reason to make beautiful furniture.

Case in point: The attractive freestanding bookcase featured in this free download. Visually, the piece captures the Arts and Crafts style but structurally it's non-traditional, going together quickly with floating-tenon joinery.

The download includes a full project article from Fine Woodworking, including a full-color, exploded drawing with dimensions, front and side views, detail drawings and plenty of photos along with detailed explanatory text.
