Traditional Oak Bookcase

Most of the hardware for the bookcase on page 30 came from Rockler. This includes the 36″ shelf standards (34025), 48″ shelf standards (34033), shelf supports (33852), and levelers (81696). The anti-tip kit used to anchor the bookcase came from Hangman Products (TK-400). The shoulder bolts (00N14.70) and bolt caps (00N20.17) are from Lee Valley.

To make the plinth blocks and the crown molding, we used a couple of Freud router bits. The plinth blocks were routed with bit 99-015. And the crown molding was made with bit 99-402.

Another option is to use purchased moldings for the bookcase. You can obtain plinth blocks and crown molding from Jarrett’s Woodworking.

The bookcase was stained with Varathane stain (American Walnut) and finished with lacquer.
