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.

  • 16 printable (digital) pages of step-by-step instructions.
  • Over 40 full-color photos and illustrations, plus patterns for carving the end boards.
