I saw the description of the Barrister Book Case years ago in FWW magazine, I decided right then and there that I had to try my hand at building one. You may notice that I use the help of crutches, and a wheel chair to get around the shop, but with the right tools, and a lot of encouragement from Wood working friends like you, handicaps seem to be forgotten for a few minutes.
The Barrister is made from Red Oak. It is constructed in individual shelf sections for two reasons. First I wanted to keep original, then each individual shelf assembly is about all that I could cary on my lap while transporting it into the house, while rolling in my wheelchair.
This was such a fun project, that when I finished the first one, I built the second one. It is now setting in my computer room holding all my electronics books, and wood working books and magazines.
Thanks for looking, and may God bless,
