Gustav Stickley Inspired Book Rack

My take on this book rack modeled after the Gustav Stickley's No. 74 book rack -- with its short design, V-shaped shelves, and D-shaped handholds. we replaced wedged tenons with simple through-tenons, adding a shelf, and tapering the end panels for a look reminiscent of the Roycroft design., the piece is finished with stain and shellac.

This elegant bookrack is perfect in a bedroom or office. It is truly a beautifully constructed piece bargain priced as a starter to your Arts and Crafts style room.

Shown in Quarter-Sawn oak it is also available in riff sawn oak.

FINISHED SIZE:
11-1/2 in. deep by 32 in. wide by 29 in. tall

Hand made to order in my wood-shop and built to last,  this is a great gift idea.
