Since I pretty much have the shop remodel all complete, it’s time to start thinking about some projects. I still have to build some storage cabinets, an outfeed table, workbench, etc…but I’m beginning to think I need to build my wife something to make her happy about all the work and time I’ve put into the shop. She has really wanted a nice bookcase to put in our hallway, so I sat down with Sketchup and did a preliminary model. I used some Greene and Greene elements as well as some Asian inspired elements to come up with what I think is a pretty nice little bookcase. A lot of the Greene and Greene details are not in the Sketchup model, but for times sake, I’ll add them during the build. I just thought I’d post a photo of the preliminary design and then I’ll post progress photos as I go and we’ll see how it turns out. I would appreciate any suggestions on the design as I really like the G & G style mixed with the Asian style legs, however I have never built a piece like this.
