We’re working on making the shelves for Dr. C’s bookcase today. The process is to take the narrow boards we milled yesterday and run them through the router table, which is outfitted with a special bit, to produce the edge-to-edge glue joints. It takes 5 boards to make a shelf, so we apply glue to enough boards at a time to make one shelf, align them and apply clamps. Repeat until we run out of space to put the glued up panels or we run out of clamps. It takes a couple of hours for the glue to set up sufficiently to safely remove the clamps and use them on another set. We have six shelves to make for this book case. See you tomorrow, Doug
