Bead-Front Bookcase

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.
