Built in bookcase, part the third

Volume 9, Issue 111; 07 Nov 2006; last modified 08 Oct 2010

Measure three times. Revised plans and a mockup to test foot placement.

I've revised the plans just a bit to strengthen the joints on the top corners and add some more visual interest.

To test the placement of the feet and length of the top, I built a quick mockup out of an old 2x4 and some scrap plywood. This also gave me an opportunity practice setting up a jig (I have no plans to attempt any of these cuts freehand) and using my new router.

The SVG diagrams for the revised front and router detail images are available.

Next step: measure again, take a deep breath, and start cutting the actual pieces.
