Limbert Bookcase

I backdated this entry because I actually finished this bookcase before we left for RSA in Philadelphia and before I had to go in for jury duty and. . . At any rate, it took a long time. The doors took longer than the carcass, and it really made me question the drive to be faithful to original pieces.

It's a copy of a Limbert bookcase from the same old Popular Woodworking Arts and Crafts project book. The joinery is weak, in my estimation. Stickley's through tenons instead of the dadoes used by Limbert would have been better. I won't just follow the plan if I build this one again. I love the beaded shiplap back, and I did add a second knob even though it isn't original.
