Book Rack

These adjustable bookracks look nice and do a good job of holding books in place. They do not hold a lot of books but they are easy enough to make that you can make several. This would make a great gift for someone who is into reading or has lots of recipe books that they like to keep close at hand.

Bookshelf, Knock-Down Video with Mortise and Tenon Joinery

When you hear the phrase knock-down furniture, you probably picture something that comes in a cardboard box, takes half an hour to assemble and can barely hold its own weight. Well, this cherry knock-down bookcase definitely does not fit that mold. It may be knock-down construction, but that is where the resemblance ends. This project is a classic design that looks great and offers a few woodworking techniques that just might surprise you. It is knock-down construction the way it should be!
