Book Rack from Repurposed Wood

Submitted to Community Café

More repurposed wood work. For the three vertical pieces these are three layers of planed wood glued together. For the slider bars it is only two. The slider moves very nicely across the full range of the rack so books can be kept vertical.

This was a lot of work for the mortising machine. The end pieces are perpendicular to the surface while the slider is mortised at 3 degrees.

WOODWORKER ALERT: Christmas is on the way. This project actually made five of these in the first run. All accounted for. The next run is another five.

The lesson learned is I need a better jig. I should have made the jig, made one, and figured it out. Each of the five in this run is slightly different resulting in a degree of hand fitting. Not cool.

Thanks,

Rex
