I apologize for the poor photos of this piece, they are photographs of the actual photos. This is a Cherry bookcase with a bit of Asian influence. The entire bookcase is constructed from solid Cherry, no plywood or veneer. This was the first piece I built here at my current studio location after leaving: http://timberwerksstudio.blogspot.com/2009/11/my-old-shop.html in the photos you can see the machinery from the old shop stored in the garage.
The work on this bookcase was primarily done with hand tools since I did not have adequate power in the garage for the machines. A band saw was used to re saw the Cherry for the panels. Joinery is mortise and tenon, finish is Tried & True varnish oil. July 2002
