Topic tags/keywords: oak joining question

I have no need for 3 large bookcases. I have considered putting them on craigslist just be be rid of them but they are made of oak and I’d love to use the lumber.

The cases measure 18” deep x 78” tall & 38” wide. The sides of the cases are 1” thick, the shelves and doors are 3/4”. The shelves and cabinet case is joined by glued dados.

Any suggestions about how to remove a glued dado? Or should I save myself from the hastle.

Are they solid wood or plywood? Depending on the glue you may be able to open the joints or perhaps just saw the carcass apart?
