Course Description  This course is based around making a low book case with adjustable shelves.  The carcase and shelves are made entirely in the solid, while the top is a book-matched burr veneer on an MDF substrate with a wide solid lipping.  The joint between burr and lip is highlighted by ebony stringing.  The construction of the carcase includes traditional lapped dovetails. The design of the bookcase, for example the dimensions or the choice of wood, can be changed by prior arrangement.
