I needed a book rack to hold my woodworking books and references. This is the result of that need. Made of plain, hard maple. Finishing was two coats of Charles Neil’s Prestain/Blotch Control, followed by TransTint Dark Vintage Maple dye, wiped on. Then several coats of Armor Seal wipe-on polyurethane.
The sliding support piece has threaded inserts on the back and bottom so that you can adjust for any number of books by loosening brass knurled knobs that slide in grooves routed on the back and underside. My problem is that after I added the rest of my woodworking books, I didn’t have room for the support or for all the books. Guess it is already time to make another one, about 1-1/2 times as long as this one. That should do it for a while.
Design is from Woodsmith, Issue #163.
