This is a project of many firsts. It is the first project i have built for my wife, the first project for the house, first time to do raised panels, first time to glue up panels, first time to make molding, first time to add hardwood edging to plywood shelves, first time to use analine dye, first time to use wipe on varnish, first time to use red oak. All in all i worked on this for about 2 months and learned alot.
My wife is a first year law student and was tired of her books being scattered all over the house. She asked me to build her a book shelf and this is what i came up with. Since im still fairly new to woodworking; with each new project i try to include elements that i have not yet done in order to learn some new skills.
I included pictures of my tall auxillary fence and 0 clearance insert plate which i built out of necessity for building the raised pannels.
