Sellers Home Bookshelf: Episode 2

Bookshelf EP2 KF

This is an episode in a paid series. Want to watch it? You just need to sign up as a paid member and you can enjoy this video and many other videos we think you will love.

The association between joints is always exciting, but when you see several elements come together in a single joint area, it becomes all the more amazing. In this episode, we make a twin tenoned housing dado joint to intersect each shelf with the side uprights. It’s an unusual joint with protruding tenons and the fullest support possible for a bookshelf to have. Accuracy and fitting are everything for making this joinery last a lifetime.

    Now I just want to work in Cherry. Watching Paul is always such a rewarding experience, sometimes it brings me peace like an ASMR video, but usually I really want to get to the workbench and make stuff.

    I have an issue with the plans/cutlist not being available at the beginning. It takes time to assemble the necessary materials and waiting until the end loses time.

    “Life is like a wood. It comes with a knot in it”
    I like this better than “Box of Chocolate” reference by Forrest Gump.

    Thumbs up!

    Would have been nice to have some commentary on the 1/8th part left on the bottom of the ends (look black on the end grain) – my guess is it to ensure it leans back into the wall but it would be good to get this confirmed as it does look a little less than Paul perfect cut end.

    There is any reason not using a rebate plane on the shelf?
