My latest project plan is a versatile project. In the configuration shown above, it is a bookcase. It can easily be converted into a cabinet with the addition of doors. I plan to build this bookcase to house hand and power tools later this year. Most likely, I'll add doors, maybe even glass doors like the bookcase which inspired the design.
This plan continues on an "easy" theme I have used over the years. While it is somewhat large, the project is easy to execute due to it being comprised of two sections: a lower cabinet and an upper. The bookcase is seven feet tall and 42 inches at its widest point.
The moldings are all easily fabricated using common cove and round-over router bits. And the feet can be ordered on-line already turned and ready to go. Here are some example screen shots of the plan (click them to enlarge)...
You Can Build an Architectural Bookcase contains the following features:
- The plan is fourteen pages in length.
- It has orthographic views showing main dimensions.
- There is a cut list showing the size of individual components.
- A number of exploded views which detail the construction process.
- Links to web based information.
A super cool project plan experience - Sawtooth Ideas.com
You Can Build an Architectural Bookcase is available for instant download from Sawtooth Ideas. This new site provides a unique way to view project plans. You can download them in the normal way; as a PDF file, but the plan becomes interactive with their IdeaRoom software. You can see the finished project in 3D, as a 3D exploded view, and even zoom in and find dimensions for specific components, again in 3D. Best of all their IdeaRoom software is available for use on a mobile device like a smart phone or tablet.
