I made this jatoba and maple bookcase to show off my interest in multi wood design. The use of multiple woods is something that creeps into much of my work. I like the dark and light contrast in the piece. The case measures 24” wide, by 12” deep by 6’ tall. I used cope and stick joints on the Jatoba frame with 1/4” maple plywood panels. The overlay on the top and bottom as well as the feet are marble wood and lend a really special look to the case. The shelves are all adjustable. The top, bottom and shelves were all cut from full width stock. The case was finished on all sides. I used one coat of linseed oil covered by four coats of Water-lox and rubbed out between coats.
