Build a stylish frame-and-panel bead-front bookcase with two drawers — in just two days.
Designing a project that can be built quickly is easy enough. But it often means leaving out a lot of the details. And for woodworkers, it’s these details that make a project interesting to build. However, details don’t have to be difficult. And this bookcase is a great example of this. For instance, the two small drawers are joined with simple locking rabbets; all the bead profiles are created with a single bit on the router table, and the frame and panel construction of the sides is straightforward too.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
