    Great! Even the back of the bookcase looks balanced
    I hope everything was going well with glue-up.

    wow this looks really good. Your workshop looks nice too – roomy. did you use many power tools, just out of interest? as in setting a stop on a table saw for the shoulder cuts of all the tenons?

    Thank you so much.
    No this was all done by hand, saws, chisels and hand planes.
    And yes the shop is really very nice, I got tired of the small shed in the backyard
    It’s about twelve by thirty feet with windows on two sides, fifth floor in a loft building, twelve foot ceilings.

    looks great, if that’s the prototype, can’t wait to see the final version, I actually like poplar quite a lot, it’s nice wood to work, good to see you’ve been busy with more work.

    Thank you so much
    I love poplar it so easy to work.
    Not quite sure of how to finish it
    I have given the panels a coat of watch oil before assembling, but not experienced enough w it

    Great looking bookcase. Can I just ask how the shelves are fixed in please. Did you use some kind of fixing brackets on the stiles or are they m&t’d in somehow.

    Cheers

    Yes the shelves are held by 1/4” shelf pins.
    I will take a close up picture for you and post.

    I sued pins in order to give myself the flexibility of adjusting the position of the shelves.

    I do like this bookcase and the way you do it. It is not a criticism of any kind, just a consideration; From the pictures I can’t figure out for sure the proportions of the cross on the sides of the bookcase. Maybe this element would look still better if the horizontal beam were the same width as the vertical.
    Good luck.
