New Project

Filed under: Woodworking — jasony @ 11:39 pm

Erin needs a book case for her hundreds of piano music books. Naturally, I volunteered to make it. I’ve spent a few days designing the look, determining the dimensions, and making sketches. We had settled on a design and I drew one end of it out in full scale on a large piece of brown wrapping paper. I had to go in and change a few things as some design errors crept in (glad I did the full scale version first.
The book case will be an Arts and Crafts inspired piece (but without doors) roughly 30″ tall, 47″ wide, and 13″ deep. Made out of solid quartersawn oak. I’m going to use the new bandsaw to bookmatch panels for the floating-panel sides. Plus, I’m including a few A&C details like ebony/wenge square pegs. Should be very nice.

Can’t wait to work on it. We’re off to the lumberyard tomorrow (after Harry Potter).
