Lighted Showcase Woodworking Plan
Here's a visually high-impact piece of furniture that you can build for only a moderate investment of time and materials. Its three glass-insert shelves let light from a concealed halogen fixture stream from top to bottom. To discover how to beef up frame corners on this project and others, see the mitered half-lap joinery article at the end of the download. This joint hides the frames' exposed end grain within the project's legs.
Measures approximately 54-1/2" tall and 22-1/4" by 18-1/4".
