Yo whats up everybody I have been working on this bookcase for about 2 months. I had to redo the shelves because when I was staining the edges the front edge got messed up then I trimmed the front edge up and that just made everything worse so I made new shelves. I didnt work on it for like 3 weeks so thats why it took so long. The bookcase is 30in tall and 18in wide. It is made out of pine and there are 2 shelves. I used dados instead of glue blocks like I did on the last bookcase. I made multiple passes on the tablesaw and that took a while but I was actually surprised how good they came out.It has 3 coats of stain and 1 coat of polyurethane.

Yo Kosta
I just saw your book case.
Pretty sharp.
Those Dados came out nice.
And the stain looks good.

try using pocket whole screws for all case and and shelf attachment you can buy a kreg r3 pocket hole jig fom from wood craft .com and i bought the the pocket whole screw assortment from amazon pocket hole screws are quick easy and best of all they are strong enough on there own not to require adding glue but if you add glue that will only make the joint that much stronger the joint will never fail

if the pocket screws were placed on the under side of each shelf you would never see the plugs
