Mission style Bookcase

Editor's Choice - Dec 28, 2016

I built this mission style bookcase out of solid quartersawn white oak. The top is 1"thick and measures 14" wide and 48" long. The case is nearly 5’ high. Staying true to the mission style I used through mortise and tenon joinery pinned with square pegs. There are three shelves, all 1" thick quartersawn white oak. For hardware I used hammered iron handles and solid brass hinges with a dark patina.

Hi Mike
I know you didn’t ask me but there are lots of books on half.com that have great plans I particularly like a number by Robert Lang’s.

Looks great! While there I also see two more for Stickley projects by Bob Lang as well… Cool!

As you may recall, I built Bob’s 21st Century Workbench as my very 1st major project. Bob does great work.

Thanks Jim!
