The “Philosopher’s Bookcase” was inspired by Paul Stefanski’s Console Table II (2006). We chose a similar concept but decided to accentuate the asymmetry by alternating butternut and basswood strips in a light-dark pattern. Splines join each cabinet corner, and the hanging shelf is joined with mortises and tenons. The two halves of the bookcase are joined by 45° wedges in the sides.
