Title: Shelves, Cabinets & Bookcases

ISBN: 9781600850493

From the Publisher;

Everyone needs more storage for books and other media. That's why building shelving is so popular among woodworkers, whether the project is a simple shelved built-in or a high-style bookcase. While building a basic box is fairly easy, constructing a stylish piece that that will hold substantial weight takes some design savvy. In this collection of recent articles from Fine Woodworking and Fine Homebuilding, America's most accomplished craftsmen contribute their advice on building sturdy and attractive bookcases and shelves, and also provide instruction for the special design requirements of built-ins and entertainment centers. The 16 projects, in a wide array of styles, offer enough variety to suit any taste and skill level.

Some of the techniques and projects you'll find inside:

  • Supporting shelves
  • Six ways to edge plywood
  • Dressing up a basic box
  • Arts & Crafts wall shelf
  • Bookshelves in a day
  • Outfitting a closet
  • Built-in basics
  • Building around electronics
  • Installing kitchen cabinets
  • Refacing kitchen cabinets
  • Drawer design strategies

About the Authors;

 Fine Woodworking was launched in 1975 in response to the lack of quality woodworking resources available. With a circulation of 287,000 woodworkers of all skill levels, the magazine has become the #1 source of how-to information on techniques, tools, finishing, and inspiration.

Since 1981, the pages of Fine Homebuilding have inspired and instructed people who care about quality of home improvement and construction. With a circulation of more than 300,000, the magazine is the premier source for information on how to build projects better, faster and more efficiently.
