Sketch of the Day: Playing Card Holder #woodworking


I saw something similar to this recently, but it positioned flat with no stand and the kerfs cut perpendicular. This also could be used to hold pieces of mail or recipe cards.

Plan of the Week: Raised Bookcase #woodworking


The Chief’s Shop Raised Bookcase gets some inspiration from Arts & Crafts/Mission styles. Differing from typical bookcase projects, the bottom shelf of this project has been lifted above floor level. The size of this project also lends itself to be used as sofa table.

You’ll need a table saw or circular saw, miter saw, jig saw, drill driver, and Kreg Jig.
