used jointer and tablesaw to dimension pine lumber. the joinery was done with hand tools.
it is held by purpleheart pegs and can be taken apart. no glue.
i am happy with the way it turned out even if i have a few mistakes.

I was about to ask how the back was attached, but then I realized that was your workbench top! Nice bookshelf, why is it called a whale shelf? Because of the shape of the tenon keys?

i think thats what they are called because of the shapes of the sides.
two curves meeting each other. its a typical detail in colonial furniture.
some versions have a bigger curved shape looking like a whale. mine are s little simpler and are taken from an article in woodsmith magazine.
