With the joints fitted, there’s some adjustments and shaping to do on the shelves. This includes planing them to width, adding an angle on the back and shaping the ends of the shelves.
Hello, it’s not the topic of the video, but i’d like to know which carpet tile do you use ? I’ve seen them on a lot of photos on the blog. Thanks
They are foam mats which we have bought from various places in the past and sit on top of the flooring. They are widely available.
“It’s getting heavier all the time!” But Paul, you’ve cut away half of the wood you started with!
That thought made me giggle. It’s a beautiful project, so interesting to see it come together.
Getting the board out-of-square is my special talent!
Lovely video everyone. It’s a lovely piece when you see it nearing final construction. With that thick poplar, it would be very sturdy. Could you use a harder wood and make everything 4/4 or thereabouts???
As 4/4 stock is often 3/4″ final size, you would be 1/2″ thinner. This would make all the joinery to a tighter tolerance. Strength-wise it should work fine, but the appearance will be different. But you could add a lip to the front to make it appear thicker.
This is real woodworking! Thank you Paul
That is a VERY awesome looking design
Space permitting, the assembly may be easier on the floor (especially if you don’t have to film it).
Great design! Thank you for the teaching! I used the tapered housing dados recently, following you. The work very nice!
