Gorgeous Handmade Bookshelf of Brazilian “Jatoba” Cherry and White Oak Without Using Fasteners or Glue | #TipsAndTricks #woodworking
In this fantastic video from Chris “Third Coast Craftsman” he builds a “Japanese Style Bookshelf” without using any fasteners or glue! He sells the plans on his website but you can get a lot out of watching a video like this – including tips for making rounding edges and not blowing out your chiseled mortises, using scrap wood as a cross-cut saw straight edge, creating knife walls for shoulder planes, and so much more. And to top it all of I am absolutely inspired by – and thankful for – Chris’s comments like this one:
“There are many different tools and methods you can use to do this task and other tasks that I’m doing for this project. So if you ever decide to do something like this and you don’t have the same tool I do or aren’t good at a certain technique, just don’t let that get you down and know that there’s many different ways to do the same thing.”
How to make a japanese style bookshelf with traditional hand cut joinery out of jatoba and oak using both power and hand tools. A very unique and beautiful build that challenged me and was very rewarding.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
