Ok, I have been agonizing over this for a bit now…Shelf pins or just use a standard….I dont have the equipment to ensure good accuracy(drill press or skill hehe) so I was thinking I would just break down and route a dado and put in shelf standards…not as classy, but workable…what do you all think?

Shelf pins. Drop by the house and I’ll loan you mine.

I vote with Karson. They are really not as difficult as it would seem. I put in pins in the bookcase I posted (my first time for the pins) with a jig made from pegboard and a straight piece of hardwood for a fence.
