In this set of free woodworking plans, we walk you step-by-step through building a hardwood book stand that, when finished with shellac, will be attractive enough to display almost any hardcover book. This woodworking project is relatively easy to build, and takes only about an hour of actual woodworking.
In the following pages, you may notice that we built our prototype with oak, but you can use almost any hardwood that will stain well. If you ever need a good gift idea, keep these plans in mind.
