    Missy's Bookcase

    The girl next door wanted me to make her a Bookcase that she could hang on the wall. So I started searching over all my left over (from other jobs) materials. This is not a big job or a difficult one. But I never have taken pictures while in progress. So Just thought you may be interested in the procedure that I used.
    I first found some clear pine for the face frame and ripped the rails & stiles to width.

    Then I cut the pieces to the proper length.

    Next I put the bit for makeing the groove in the router and all pieces get a groove on the back side.

    They are all laid out so you can see the grooves

    Next comes the pocket holes in the rails.

    Then I glued up the ends of the rails and attached them to the stiles,making sure that the grooves are to the out side edges of the stiles and that the grooves in the top rail is near the top edge and the bottom rail the groove must be away from the bottom edge,so as to leave room for the floor.

    At this point I sanded all joints smooth and flush.

    I then routed the tounges on the sides of the case.

    Checked with a dry fit first and all was good so then glue up was in order.

    There is a nailer that is put in at the top of the back That has a groove in the bottom edge,that groove accepts the back of the case,there are also grooves in the back edge of each side to retain the back as well so there is only a few screws at the very bottom.
    If you make a mistake it was part of the original plan!

    Hope I am doing this right, but I had 2 more picture to add, and could just get 10 in the first go around, Not that they are all that great but at least you can see how it turned out

    She is going to paint it anyway so It didn't need to have expensive wood.
    Getts cofusing some times to remember if I took a picture of all that I should have.
