Federal Bookcase Woodworking Plan
With fluted pilasters and a keyed arch topped by a broken pediment, this project brings the vocabulary of classical architecture into the living room.
As a bookcase fitted with wood shelves, it's a home for your personal library. By installing lights and glass shelves you can display fine collectibles. Or, if you wish, combine the two as we did for the best of both interests.
In this project you'll learn how to rout flutes by using a simple auxiliary base with your plunge router. And large cove moldings are a breeze with just your tablesaw and a straightedge.
Measures 75" tall, 38" wide and 12" deep.
