Barristers Bookcase

from the WOOD Store

Our twist on this classic project includes a drawer at the bottom to keep hanging files close at hand. Even full loaded, it rolls in and out easily on heavy-duty slides. The drawer box joiner requires just a single setup on the tablesaw explained within this plan. As an option, we'll show you how to install a mortised lock in the bottom drawer.

Overall dimensions are 35" wide by 16" deep by 49" high.
