    Yes… And lightness is not the last thing to consider.

    Book matched panel for the bookcase
    Ripped from a 3/4 inch board.
    I think this is the way to go once I build it in walnut.

    Very handsome – this is no prototype, it’s just the Poplar version😊

    Fitting shelves prior to glue-up so they help maintain square.

    Progress pic, all shelves are now done.
    Just need the infill panels to disassemble and glue-up.

    Steadily towards the completion…
    I may assume the pine planks are used for some sort of alignment, but I can’t figure out the reference (starting) point.

    I am sorry Misha, not quite sure what you mean, are you referring to the 1x2s at the front. Those will become the frames for hinging the door.
    I mocked them up to make sure the vertical distance is the same on both ends.

    Checked for square and got lucky!!

    Yes, I was. And thanks for clarifying the matter.

    Oh, how do you make sure the rails are the same distance from the edge of the stiles when you assemble the first two joints? I mean there may be small  gaps in the mortises for the tenons to move a bit.

    Sorry for the delay in answering your question, I had not checked-in in a while.

    I basically use the top of the posts(stiles) as the reference point for all vertical dimensions.
    Once I am sure the stretchers(rails) are flush w the top of posts I then measure to the top of the lower stretches to ascertain they are parallel.
    Ps I use the top of stretches as my reference edge as a matter of habit well.
    In the case of the door frame, there is an additional frame and I have pre-cut the verticals to guarantee that the distance between the stretches will be the same when I proceed to glue-up.
