Books for further research: 

Brown, William. The Tabernacle: Its Priests and its Services. Peabody MA: Hendrickson Publishers, 1996. This is actually a better "text" book on the Tabernacle than Levine’s: it has very clear explanations as well as diagrams.

Edersheim, Alfred. The Temple: its Ministry and Services as they were at the Time of Jesus Christ. Grand Rapids, MI : Kregel Publications, 1997. Introduction by John J. Bimson. Original date of publication, 1874. This book is arguably the definitive text on all things pertaining to what went on in the temple at Jerusalem. There are several editions, including illustrated editions. One can still get a photocopy edition of the original 1874 text as well.

Holzapfel, Richard N., and David Seely. My Father's House: Temple Worship and Symbolism in the New Testament. Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1994. A Mormon work primarily intended for church members, however it has some excellent illustrations and much valuable historical material, making it of interest to a wider audience.

Levine, Moshe. The Tabernacle: Its Structure and Utensils. Tel Aviv: Published for Soncino Press, London, New York, by Melechet Hamishkan, 1969. Photography: Israel Zafrir. This is a “coffee table book” with beautifully illustrating photography.
