I made this bookcase for my wife’s cookbooks. This was my first foray into loose tenon joinery—it looked simple enough but 54 wooden parts for a 3 shelf bookcase turned out to be anything but simple (at least for me). All in all I think it turned out ok. I used quartersawn red oak for everything but the top and panels where I used red oak veneered plywood. It was also my first time using wooden table top fasteners. One thing I did learn after this one is I am buying some undersized plywood bits for my router as climb cutting grooves for plywood that is not actually 1/2” is a pain.
