After a long delay and a few stops and stutters my wife’s bookcase is finally completed. It’s a simple design with a base and hutch. I decided to use plywood for the majority of the components, as cutting wider pieces is so much easier with sheet goods.
But instead of the usual home center plywood I opted to dive right into using premium plywood. While it nearly tripled the bottom line, the final results were worth it. I’ll never look at home center plywood the same again after indulging on this stuff.
Today’s episode is just the introduction and covers a large portion of my ripping the sheets to their final dimensions, or at least close to it. For sure it was a matter of taking them down to more manageable sizes. And I even included a scene that I’m not to proud of as I make what could’ve been a dumb and costly mistake. Costly as in, rush to the hospital if it went bad costly!!
