Mon - Wed

Greetings! During the first part of this week we got going on the carcass of the second book case. The side panels are done – I made those when I did the sides for the first book case because they are all the same. The top & bottom plates are slightly smaller than the other case, so I left them to be made separately. That has been done, along with milling the face frame parts and assembling the casework with glue and pocket hole screws. As before, making the panels involves cutting the 8 foot rough-sawn planks to rough length, ripping the 6” wide boards in half, planning them smooth, glue jointing them and gluing the narrower boards back into wide panels. All this is done to produce a panel that is more likely to lay flat and stay that way. Till next time… Doug
