Today’s episode starts off with drilling the series of holes on the sides for the adjustable shelves. The key to this task is to get them parallel to the edges of the sides and of course more importantly with each other. To get the job done right I’m using the Veritas Shelf Drilling Jig.
It’s at this step that even with the flattest shelves, if the holes are misaligned, the shelves are nearly impossible to correct and the books or nick-knacks displayed on them will really emphasize the mistake. And once we finish with the adjustable holes, it’s time to move onto the glue-up and assembly.
In the second half of the episode we’ll talk more about a fix to help take care of unsquare glue-ups. One that doesn’t involve tearing the assembly apart and starting all over. No special tools required, just the clamps you’re already using.
