« Part 9: The Upper case/Bookcase started Part 10 of A Stepback Cupboard build series Part 11: Face frame, and a bit of assemby work.. »

Won’t be quite as long winded, this time around…..Had three blanks for shelves…..they needed to fit into the sliding dovetails I milled into the sides. Had the router set up..

With a fence. Needed a way to support it, while making a cut…..decided to gang all three blanks up..

And do a few test runs..

They were a bit ragged, but a small file soon cleaned them up..

Had a few errands to run…came back and made a few more cuts..

Got all six pins done,,somehow. Had to keep shuffling the blanks around, rather than change the setting on the router…..Decided to install the shelves in their spots..

Just a hammer, no glue. I will need to add a 2” filler strip in the back of each shelf….

Front of the shelves are flush with the front edge of the sides. Will add a plywood back..later.

This morning, before Lunch, even! Hauled a board to the shop. Wanted to glue up the top of the bookcase
Two pieces @ 26” long, from one board..

There was a huge knot on one end of the board….just happen to land in the scrap section. Edges needed a bit of work.
. I marked things with a “V” to mark the show side, and how the two will line up….

As for the gappy edges…we have ways..

Ran these two planes awhile, was finally close enough, I could spread a bead of glue, and add a few clamps..

All this, before Lunch. Will let this sit a while ( until AFTER Lunch?) then haul more lumber to the shop….have a door to work on…face frame and all…
Stay tuned…
