Book rest (PDF)

This week we have the Design for making up a simple Book Rest, and as the illustration shows, it is a piece of work which would be acceptable to anyone. The Book Rest illustrated is planned with its two end panels in Antofret, but it is so arranged that these panels can be cut in straightforward fretwork if so desired.

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!

Bookshelf Option, Mortise and Tenon (PDF)

Australian Woodsmith is a practical magazine for all woodworkers. From Issue 39. I used biscuit joinery to assemble the sides of the Knock-Down Classic Bookshelf, but the traditional mortise and tenon joinery shown at right will do the job just as well.
