This is a design I'm poking at, and I'd welcome comments or suggestions.
I started with an authentic Stickley Magazine shelf/stand -- from the book "Making Authentic Craftsman Furniture: Instructions and Plans for 62 Projects (Articles from The Craftsman, Edited by Gustav Stickley)"
I then looked for ways to simplify the plan. I am planning to build this for a charity goods/n/services auction at our church later in the season. I don't want anything too complex. In part, I'd like to keep the construction simple to make it a bit easier to build quickly.
This is what I've got so far. (Sorry, don't have a scan of the original plan, I could grab that tonight if desired)

I've dropped one of the shelves, and I've eliminated the through-tenons.
I also replaced the 3-4 narrow vertical boards in the sides with one larger board. However, I tweaked that by putting in a keyhole design in the middle to lighten it up a bit.
This should be fairly simple to assemble, with biscuits (or pocket hole screws+plugs) which is a bonus.
