« Part 10: Shelves, and a top shelf Part 11 of A Stepback Cupboard build series Part 12: Bookcase needs a door »

Maybe even a PIP?

Got the parts for the face face milled..

Jointed the edges. Milled some tenons..

That I thought were correct…..was a bit too much tenon….
Chopped a few mortises…

Until I could do a glue up..

Later, came back and tried a dry fit to the front of the case…case was wider than the frame….added a thin strip along the outside edges. Drilled a counter bored holes. Marked out, and drilled counter bored holes to attach the top.

marked radius on the front corners of the top. Ran a cove bit around both ends and across the front of the top….on the underside.

Attached the top with a few screws…will need to plug the counter-bores with more Walnut plugs. Attached the face frame, using a few screws…

Added a pair of cleats..

To attach the bookcase to the lower case…..

Two screws into the sides of the bookcase. Step back a ways, inorder to get the entire project into the picture..

Yep, going to be a tall one. Need to start building the raised panel door, next.
Stay tuned….
