Wharton Esherick was an artist and studio furniture maker before virtually everyone else. His work is often sculptural with light, flowing lines. The 1956 Book Stand is no exception.

Wharton Esherick Book Stand

Don’t be fooled by the simplistic appearance of this book stand, the construction is a challenge. In this 5-day class, you’ll create your version of this Wharton Esherick masterpiece. From the curved and rounded dovetails to the sculpted shelves with through-tenon construction, this little project packs a powerful woodworking punch.

 

Some of the skills learned in the Book Stand class are:

  • Project design
  • Through mortise-and-tenon joinery
  • Sculpted furniture parts
  • Curved dovetails
