This is a modification of the Display Bookcase Plan from American Woodworker September 2007 Issue #130. I built this Display Cabinet for a good friend with a very extensive, varied and quality fishing reel collection. It seems to be well accepted and well stocked. So, I am very pleased with the results as was modified to fit the location and usage requirements.
DIMENSIONS: ” 28”x10”x60”
MATERIALS/CONSTRUCTION: 3/4” Oak Plywood carcass using glued dado joints. Face frame is milled dimensional red oak. Top trim and built-up support base constructed with dimensional red oak and oak plywood using hidden and height adjustable feet. The bypass glass door frame joinery is mortise with floating tenons. The red oak doors slide on Euro Track hardware and one door has a Large Mouth Brass Bass door handle. The drawers are red oak with brass cup pulls. The glass thickness in the rabetted doors is 1/8” and the shelves are 1/4” thick supported by shelf clips on shelf standards that are recessed/grooved flush with the sides in order to maximize the shelving width of this narrow depth Display Cabinet/Case and streamline/detail the appearance.
FINISH: “Secret Sauce” . . .Golden Oak, Chestnut with a splash of Mahogeny Stain homemade Wipe-On Semi-Gloss Poly over Shellac. . . with many layers applied between 0000 wool “sandings.” The finish texture is very smooth & shiny and allows the custom made finish to show with a lot of warm colors and tones.
Any questions, please let me know and I will gladly answer them.
Thank you & Best Regards,
