Built in bookcase, part the fourth

Volume 9, Issue 121; 09 Dec 2006; last modified 08 Oct 2010

Cut once.

I've now cut and routered all the fixed pieces: the top, the bottom, both sides, three vertical dividers, and four fixed shelves. (I have yet to cut all the adjustable shelves.)

I've also chiseled square the routered slots for the shelf clips.

And I've sanded the whole collection of boards once (and I have the tinnitus, ear protection not withstanding, and numb hands to prove it). After I've sanded them again, I'll start trying to assemble the bookcase.


Have you seen the other Norm (Abrams) using these Norm? http://www.amazon.com/Porter-Cable-42234-Corner-Chisel/dp/B0000224L6 Cheap as chips and really smart!

Bit late for this project I guess.

No, I hadn't seen those. Would have been very handy! I'm not uniformly happy with my corners. But hopefully they won't be very visible in the end.
