This is the first project I ever built, as part of a woodworking class I took about eight years ago. It’s made from walnut and ash, with a wipe-on poly finish.

This is a nice project. The walnut and ash work well together and I like the pegged tenons.

Thanks for the compliments. Once nice thing about this design is it can be shipped flat, so makes a good gift.

Good job Bob.
This is a good project, as I have a few of these in my home but never stopped to think of making one.

Very nice Bob. It looks like this design allows for one adjustable side for a varying number of books. Is that right?

Yes, exactly. I’m not sure where my instructor got the design (I think it came from a magazine) but it’s very clever.

Nicely done – I like the width of it and the mixed woods. When I made mine it was too narrow so doesn’t support large books too well – yours looks like it will.
