This is my Roycroft Little Journeys Book Stand in QSWO. It is a pretty faithful reproduction of the antigue original. It measures 26”h x 14”d x 26.5” h. The shelves are 6.4” d. It was built to display a set or original Little Journeys books and other Roycroft publications. The book stand features through M&T joints with tusk tenons. The top is held in place with table irons. The finish is Trans Tint reddish brown with an antique walnut gel stain glaze. It has three coats of satin poly and a final coat of clear Briwax.
The foot pattern was traced from a poster board template.
The foot and top rail mortises were machine cut and cleaned with mortising chisels.
The dry fit of the side assembly before cutting the through mortise for the shelves.
Forming the through tenons and chamferring the ends.
Assembled ready for finish.
