Record Bookcase

When I first moved to Seattle back in June, I wanted to build a new bookshelf for my apartment and needed to branch out from the basic tools I brought with me. I started looking for used tools online and came across the tool library. You guys had a few biscuit joiners listed on the website, so I stopped in and signed up. It was a pretty busy Saturday and the coordinators definitely had their hands full! Being new to the city, I was looking for ways to get involved and volunteering seemed like a good opportunity to help out with such a cool project.

The Record Bookcase Comes to Life!

From the tool library, I used the biscuit joiner, bar clamps and a few hand planes to trim the edge banding. I also used my own table saw, router, and sander, but all that could have easily been borrowed, too!

My background is in sculpture and I’ve been working with wood to build simple furniture for several years. Professionally, I work as an Art Handler for Artech (a local Fine Art Services Company) where I get to pack, transport and install artwork all over the city. For my next project, I’m planning to borrow a grinder to start repairing an old fiberglass kayak that was rescued from the rubble heap. Wish me luck!
