Build a Glass Front Bookcase with Steve Latta
Glass doors protecting your collection of small turnings, antique tools or rare first editions bring a level of sophistication to this already elegant bookcase. Light gently bounces off the rich texture of the eight panes of old, salvaged glass, cut and glazed into each door. The beaded face-frame, profiled shelf-edges, ogee or flat bracket feet, 3/8 mullions and a frame-and-panel back all contribute to the overall refinement of the piece. The hardware, brass butt hinges, surface bolts and lock bolster the design.
In this class, we will get a get a great deal of the project completed during the week by focusing on a professional, strategic approach to tackling the many tasks involved in this case piece. During our week together, Steve will emphasize the process of woodworking as much as the product. Many folks talk about the artistic nature of woodworking but in doing so, only tend to look at the finished piece sitting on display. Steve will explore the path itself that takes us to that point and the sense of rhythm that adds its own spirit.
