    Looks neat and promising!

    I would be very grateful if you tell the dimensions of the stiles and show the upper corner in disassembled state.

    Orestes,
    Thanks a lot for all the information and the pictures.
    At the moment I am making a similar construction. It is not a bookcase but the frame is very much the same. And your post made me pause a bit and think it over again. Now, with your photos, I’m not confused but confident.)) So, tomorrow it will be time for chopping mortises.

    Could you tell what you use for panels: poplar, plywood or veneer.

    Used 1/4 inch poplar. I first tried plywood but it didn’t look right

    Orestes,
    Thanks for the photo.
    Rather thin panels. Did you thickness (I suppose this is not a correct word) them with a hand plane or pass them through a planer?
    Excuse my asking so many questions; what thickness the boards were when you glued them?

    The panels are a fat 1/4 inch, pre-finished.
    You are see the ends, I beveled the edges with a no 4 in the back to fit the grooves ( a thin 1/4 inch)

    When I build the walnut cabinet I think I may use 1/2 boards, but I wanted to keep the prototype as light as possible
