Another project finished this weekend: we need some storage space in the kitchen, and made this shelves with osb veneered with cedrillo (I couldn’t find an accurate translation). It’s a nice but not so expensive wood from here, Argentina.
Since I don’t have a table saw yet, I’ve asked the board cut in 1 feet wide planks, then cut to lenght with a jigsaw and used screws and some plastic 90 angles to join the boards.
They said this would be enough, but it wobbles a bit so I’ll probably add some thin plywood at the back to make it more stable.
After reading it so many times here and there, I meassured twice and cut once. It works great, I only had a difference of less than a milimiter, but I can live with that provided that I only have a jigsaw so far.
The only tricky part was to trim the remainder of the edge banding with a cutter. Should I use a handplane the next time? The grain in the edge banding was mainly oblique to the horizontal plane, so I had to be very carefull when cutting to avoid going against the grain (as it happened a couple of times).
