Trough-Style Bookrack

You only need a couple of special hardware items to build the bookrack. The bottom shelf is attached with tabletop fasteners from Rockler (34215). I bought a section of steel rod at the hardware store to make the trough supports.

The bookcase was finished “naturally” with several coats of wiping varnish. This simple finish gives the wood a pleasing amber glow.
