Built this Book rack using plans from Woodsmith issue 171 for my wife to remedy the pile of books on her side of the bed. Used white oak to match the bed I made and the dresser and nightstand I still plan to build.

Well done! Judging by your wife’s book collection, I’m NOT gonna tangle with her!

Really good job. My daughter wants bookends but I like this idea much better.

A super nice build and that design is always in style.
There’s one of these coming up for myself and my daughter if I can ever find the plans.
Nice to see you back after a long hiatus.
