    Paul and crew thanks for another great video, I am liking these bookcase classes very much. Still need to finish my stool and my compass plane. Yeah I got a little behind .

    Great video. I can’t wait to get started… I’m waiting for the weather to warm up a bit…my shop is not heated (yet) so I am practicing this project in my mind. I’m the worlds worst at confusing myself on lay up and after you warned to be sure to make your sides opposite, I was wondering why you don’t lay both pieces on the workbench, lay them up back to back at the same time? I figure you have a reason for that but I had to ask…

      You can do that and I often check myself that way. But, frankly, I can visualize opposites throughout layout so it works without for me.

    I agree with John…. The Super-Glue fix was very informative. I have had that problem on virtually every project I’ve done and never thought of Super-Glue as a fix! Wonderful & informative (as always) and adaptable to many other projects.

    Is there a recommended kind of superglue and (especially) accelerator? I have not used an accelerator before. Thanks! Very informative.

      I use zip kicker. Accelerator seems to be readily available at art supply places, at least that’s where I get it. It’s creates an instant bond so watch out!
