YouTuber Third Coast Craftsman creates a beautiful free-standing bookshelf with Japanese wood joinery in the video above. I’ve built a couple projects using similar techniques, but this shelf is next level. He’s using jatoba, which is a very dense wood. Good for resisting scratching, rot and pests, but very hard to work with. It’s a beautiful project and the video is very well done. If you want to build one for yourself, he’s selling plans.
