Saw this in a blog by Chris Schwarz (here) and really liked the proportions. It was originally designed for Stickley by Harvey Ellis, who lightened the heavy Stickley look with a slight taper to the legs and the curved top stretcher. I changed the way the bottom shelf meets the stretcher to ensure consistent grain.
The piece is quartersawn white oak with an aniline dye followed by three coats of varnish/oil and brown paste wax.
An easy little build though I had to use some case-hardened oak for the legs I was able to keep the visible checks to a minimum.
The back is shiplapped flat-sawn white oak with a chamfer at the seams. Unfortunately, the case is a little small to hold full-sized kids books. Magazines or small books are the ticket.
