Chip-Carved Book Rack
Here's a small project with big appeal -- a great look, classic joinery, and a chance to learn a simple carving technique.
There's no rule that says a small, straightforward project can't have loads of detail as well as interesting woodworking. The book rack shown here proves the point. Simple, Craftsman-style lines and basic joinery provide just the right challenge to your skills. And to top it off, from start to finish the project can be completed in a weekend.

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.
