This is a project that i’ve been working on for about 4 or 5 months(my wife says forever).It’s not an exact copy, but a close rendition of the blacker house bookcase. The original is one of my favorite G&G pieces.I made mine out of curly maple, hard maple and ebony. As with a lot of my projects its built m&t and floating panels , with a few dovetails. As with each project that i have taken on, I seem to learn not only what to do, but also what not to do. In that regard, G&G pieces seem simple from the outside(possible the attraction for many woodworkers) but when you reproduce all of the little details you gain an appreciation for there sometimes laborsom , but beautifully simple details(countless hours pillowing resulting in very sore fingers).Though this project challenged my abilities, I love the challenge of trying something new, and this project has a little of everything.All that is left is to final fit the doors and another coat of oil/varnish(it already has waterbourne dye and one coat of oil).thanks for looking everybody!
