Even on large projects, it’s often the small details that intrigue us the most and it’s the small details, sometimes the hidden ones, that ensure the longevity and strength of our work. The engineering of the shelf joints becomes more self-evident as the housing dadoes and twin tenons combine with a simple technique that dovetails the tenons within the joints. The project assembly and gluing up the joints systematically is critical to ensure a successful outcome. This step-by-step video will help you to see exactly how this should be done.

    That was the most nerve racking glue-up ever. Great work Paul! I can’t wait to make this when I get some timber.

    I agree. Challenging glue up. I would need a second set of hands at least. And probably do it outside… 🙂
