As my first project I decided to build a small bookcase for my office. Design of the book case includes:
At this point I have sanded the jatoba wood working my way up the grits from 60 > 80 > 100 > 150 > 220.
My plan was to build the shelving structure using 1 inch galvanized piping. Saw some ideas on-line. Having been thinking about:
2. Building two ladder like structures, but drilling 4 holes into and through the wood on each corner. Using this technique I can then slide or lower each shelve onto the piping structure.
3. On the surface of each piece of wood, I will use galvanized pipe floor flanges and attach 4 in each corner of the wood using screws for each floor flange. I can then screw a pipe into each flange and build the shelf up that way.
Option 2 might be my best way to proceed. However, I need to drill a 1 inch wide hole through Jatoba that is 2 inches thick. Do you think I can successfully do this with a hole saw? I don’t have any scrap to practice on either.
