Made of cherry (seems to be the way I roll) this bookcase was built from a design in Woodsmith. this is the second one I’ve built, the first being much larger and made of oak. But that was for our last house, we had downsized and the old one was way too large….hence the replacement. Anyway, what I like most about this design is the way it disassembles into smaller parts. There are 4 major assemblies (2 sides, capital and base) then the bacl and 5 shelves complete it. One thing I did different on this one was end the flutes in a bullet shape. After I built the last one (with lots of burning problems with the stopped flutes I did at the time) someone sent in a tip of running the router up a ramp at the end of a cut. That eliminates the burning, as well as give you the bullet tips. So in the pics the first is the disassembled bookcase, the second is the finished product. The third shows those bullet tips I mentioned and the forth is the ramp set up I used while routing the flutes. Thanks for looking.
