The project plans and step-by-step instructions in this article will lead you through the process of building an attractive and functional bookcase of cherry and fir. Peter Zuerner designed this spare and elegant piece that he now regularly stocks in his furniture shop. He minimized the number of parts with frame-and-panel construction that integrates the four legs. He also explains how to cut cove molding with a router bit and a dado set on the tablesaw. Even when filled with books, this piece of furniture appears light and graceful.
