Bookcase Project Summary
Information for the bookcase project
Bookcase Project Tour
A complete virtual tour of the Bookcase project as well as a discussion of what you need in terms of materials and tools.
Circular Saw Cutting Jig
You don't need expensive commercial jigs to cut plywood. Using inexpensive materials, we'll make our own!
Materials & Cutting Parts
A look at the materials used for this project as well as an in-depth demonstration of breaking down plywood for parts.
Joinery & Plywood Trim
All case joinery is done using the router and a special plywood bit. An of course, we need to cover those ugly plywood edges!
Whenever possible, I recommend pre-finishing. But you absolutely must have a logical strategy in place.
This video not only covers the assembly of the bookcase, but also the drilling of the shelf pins.
The Face Frame
Nothing dresses up a plywood case better than a face frame! Learn how to assemble and attach a face frame to the bookcase carcass.
