Arts and Crafts Book Rack Plan
Gregory Paolini modeled this book rack after the Gustav Stickley's No. 74 book rack -- with its short design, V-shaped shelves, and D-shaped handholds. But Paolini also made the design his own, replacing wedged tenons with simple through-tenons, adding a shelf, and tapering the end panels for a look reminiscent of the Roycroft designs he loves. Paolini uses a router template to lay out and cut the slots for the shelf mortises and the other cutouts on the end panels. His router technique uses a guide bushing for initial cuts, followed by cleanup with a flush-trimming bit. The tenons are cut on the tablesaw, and the piece is finished with stain and shellac.
