« Part 5: Staining and lessons learned Part 6 of 3 pc.bookcase cabinet series series Part 7: Kreg hole jig 180 mistakes or mine??? Assemble the upper case »

My bookcase project has 3 upper shelves units —6 sides—wiith adjustable holes for 3 shelves each. So thats 15 holes per front side then back side. = 30. Opposite side another 30. 60 one case times 3 180 holes. I did so much layout and planning. It paid off when I used the Kreg jig. What a relief. The sanding was clean I eased the front edges. Today was the staining outdoors of the six sides. So the last panel here is the look on part of it. I like how the grain swirls and looks rich. This is Early American. by Varathane. So close to assembly. I need 12 stretchers for the back of the cases—cut shape and sand. pocket holes and we can assemble the upper cases. Thanks Hal

That’s looking real good, Hal!

I would not have guessed that is poplar.
