441 Maple Kid’s Bookcase Pt. 3

September 23, 2010

In part 3 of the Kid’s Bookcase construction we start the final assembly. At this point all the components are cut to their final dimensions and we’ve done our dry fits to make sure everything is going to come together without a hitch.

While I chose to use pockethole joinery to bring everything together, we’ll talk about our OPTIONS for possible joinery in your project.

    Hey Matt

    I did have one additional idea for the joinery. How about a full length sliding dovetail? Either a through one to show off the joinery or a blind one with a notch (so it doesn’t show from the front) for the sides or the stationary shelf or both? If it is done right, you don’t even have to glue it, just use a few screws or brads for the back.

      Oh I like the way you think John! I did sliding dovetails on a chest of drawers I built for my wife and they looked amazing.

    Nice content Matt. Thank you for your video. A chance to win a shop full of Lie Nielsen???? I am in in a huge way with monster size capital letters.
    Your joinery is going to take the abuse of the kids. Great job.
