This is the finest thing I’ve ever built.
The idea was inspired by a shelf of similar design that my great grandfather handmade and handed down to my grandfather. I grew up seeing it in his office, and I thought I’d make one of my own.
It currently holds all the books on my reading list!
I worked on the project in my brother bob turek‘s woodshop.
This was crafted from a single 4-foot piece of birch wood, with two small dowel inserts in the joint.
