Well this is a fun story. I wanted to make a bookshelf. I was drawing and drawing and didn’t like anything i was putting down on paper. then i came up with this Idea. I wasn’t to sure it would work. In fact i didn’t think it would be strong at all. So I asked My teacher Mr. Reichling if it would work. and he said we could try some things and we decided that using a stacked dado would be the best fit. and it worked out great. Very very strong. it can support a lot of weight. Just for looks i put a walnut face frame on it. Good choice id say. Enjoy!
