Mission Bookcase In Cherry
I really appreciate Arts & Crafts era furniture, so I designed this piece to try and emulate design elements I liked. I opted for more of a mission-style which I thought would look really good with the Cherry I planned to build this from. I used a mix of power tools and hand tools here. Each arch and all the legs were hand-carved (saw, chisel, spokeshave) and the sehlves and top were flattened with hand planes. All of that was out of necessity, rather than desire, due to limited tool selection in my personal shop.
