once upon a time, googling, i discover the work of Stickley, i have to do a set of shelves for my home
by this way , i do this first try before to do the big one, I love it , gave it to my son, and today edit it and commercialize it.
I work whith “pinus eliotii” (nature conscious way of life), I’m not an ativist, but think that when it possible to protect nature , it’s become a must and a duty.

I’m assuming that by Pins you mean through tenons? The wedges will hold the piece tight, and if they work loose just tap the wedge. If you want to disassemble just pull the wedges and the piece comes apart. This is very nice, I like it. The joinery is great.
