How to Build a Bookcase by Jon Peters

I get started building this small bookcase, which is a great woodworking project that follows a classic and pretty basic design. I use Quarter Sawn White Oak for the legs, top and small bead molding at the bottom of the bookcase, and will give that a natural finish. The rest of the cabinet will be painted white. Here’s Part 1 of the series where I build the base of the cabinet.

A bit about book cases (source: Wikipedia)

A bookcase, or bookshelf, is a piece of furniture with horizontal shelves, often in a cabinet, used to store books or other printed materials. Bookcases are used in private homes, public and university libraries, offices and bookstores. Bookcases range from small, low models the height of a table to high models reaching up to ceiling height. Shelves may be fixed or adjustable to different positions in the case. In rooms entirely devoted to the storage of books, such as libraries, they may be permanently fixed to the walls and/or floor.

A bookcase may be fitted with glass doors, that can be closed to protect the books from dust or moisture. Bookcase doors are almost always glazed with glass, so as to allow the spines of the books to be read. Especially valuable rare books may be kept in locked cases with wooden or glazed doors. A small bookshelf may also stand on some other piece of furniture such as a desk or chest. Larger books are more likely to be kept in horizontal piles and very large books flat on wide shelves or on coffee tables.

In Latin and Greek the idea of bookcase is represented by Bibliotheca and Bibliothēkē (Greek: βιβλιοθήκη), derivatives of which mean library in many modern languages. A bookcase is also known as a bookshelf, a bookstand, a cupboard and a bookrack. In a library, large bookshelves are called stacks.

Today I am going to set the drawers in a cabinet that I am building. I like the way that the wood drawers run on wooden runners; plus I wanted to save some money by not using metal drawer glides. Using a plywood jig, watch as I show you how to fit drawers with wooden drawer slides and save some cash along the way - enjoy!

How to Build an Entryway Table - Make Drawers & Drawer Pulls

This table is made of solid Cherry. It's designed to be used as a hallway table, entrance table, or sofa table. The wood grain in the drawer fronts is continuous with the apron and the drawer pulls are made of Bubinga. I added a small bead at the bottom of the apron and tapered legs as a design element. The front of the top has a slight curve and a 5° downward bevel. A link to the professional designs are provided below.

In this video my son Walter and I will build a simple cabinet for the music studio. The cabinet is made with three-quarter inch birch plywood and trimmed with cedar edge banding. We used half inch plywood for the back to give the Cabinet a little more strength.

How to Build a Modern Desk - Free Design Plans

Join Makers Mob:

This Mid-Century Modern desk is built with Baltic birch plywood to give it more substance and weight. The veneer is quarter-sawn white oak and I used a highly figured white oak for the drawer fronts. The desk is finished with clear spray lacquer from Mohawk finishing products, which really makes the character of the white oak pop. I used white hairpin legs for this desk to give it a clean and modern look. There are free plans on my website and professional SketchUp plans on Makers Mob.
