Mission Style Book Rack
The accompanying sketch shows a book rack designed strictly along mission lines. Enough stock may be found among the scrap, as no piece is over 1 in, in width or thickness. If stock is not on hand, secure the following, cut to exact lengths:
- 2 stretchers, 1 by 1 by 20 in., S-4-S.
- 4 posts, 1 by 1 by 7-1/2 in., S-4-S.
- 4 rails, 1 by 1 by 7 in., S-4-S.
- 8 slats, 1/2 by 1/2 by 3-1/2 in., S-4-S.
Mission, weathered or fumed-oak stain will look well. A waxed finish should be used. Before applying the wax, it is well to use a very thin coat of shellac as a foundation. Let this coat stand for a few hours and allow an interval of at least an hour between applying the coats of wax.Should the rack wind a little, it may be remedied by cutting off part of two diagonally opposite racks.These above are free old vintage plans that were scanned or taken from old magazines for you to use and not to be confused with plans I sell on this site that I have drawn myself a short while back.
