Apothecary CabinetApothecary Cabinet

In the days before pharmacy chains and mail-order prescription services, there was the local apothecary or pharmacist. This individual prepared all manner of remedies for ailments ranging from gout to mysterious fevers. And more often than not, he stored his antidotes in a cabinet very much like the one we've designed for you. Ours is great for storing all sorts of things. And it holds its own as a home accent piece, too. Measures 35¼" H x 33" W x 10¼" D.

The best traditional desk designs always have offered a way to organize paperwork, and just as important, to keep any clutter out of sight when you're not working. This writing desk succeeds on both counts. Our version-built of pine and finished with a colorful stain-has a decidedly country flavor, but you can use hardwood and a different finish to create a look all your own. Measures 42" H x 34" W x 17" D.

Arts and Crafts Mission Day BedArts and Crafts Mission Day Bed

Ever found yourself in a predicament ... not having enough beds for your kids or friends when they stop by for an overnight visit?

We got the bed we really wanted by buying an inexpensive trundle bed, salvaging the mattress frames from it, and building a custom surround for them. Measures approximately 31" H x 77" W x 45" D.

WOOD has seen a great many bookcases in their travels around the country, but none more good-looking and versatile than this one. And should you ever have to relocate, you'll find the modular pieces making up the bookcase a breeze to take apart and reassemble. We even include instructions to build a four-high bookcase. The two-high bookcase measures approximately 28" H x 42" W x 12½" D.

Rolltop Writing DeskRolltop Writing Desk

WOOD receives dozens of letters a year from readers requesting plans for a rolltop desk. Unfortunately, most plans call for desks too massive for most homes and too complex for most busy woodworkers. With that in mind, Jim Downing, our design editor, came up with this gracefully elegant design. It won't overpower a room, yet still has a comfortable 24½ x 44" writing surface. Desk is approximately 41" H x 44" W x 25" D.
