Well here’s my book case entry. It’s made of three panles. The top is attached to the sides with through mortises and tennons held with wedges. The sides are a row of stiles in the rails. The shelves are panle glue ups. The shelves are atached to the sides with pocket screws and shalow datos. It is square 48 inches by 48 inches. This has been very challenging as I’m only marginal at best on the computer. But it’s a very good way to learn SKETCHUP. When you are viewing the entry keep in mind that I’ve only returned to wood working a short time ago.

I would redo this if I had more time. I have had some control issues. The progam crashed and some of this poject was redone in a hurry.

Hi John,

I am not getting the bookcase to come through. The stiles does, however.

The link to the book case SketchUp file is missing a ‘w’ in ‘www’. The actual link is:
