Most people are probably groaning already, but here is the story. My girlfriend is into knitting, and a lot of knitting stores keep their wool in displays similar to or exactly like this one. I want to make one that is probably 3×3 squares. In the past i have used my pocket hole jig to attach shelves like this, but the close space won’t let me get in there properly. I could use a track system or melamine with the holes punched in it for pegs, but I want it to look better than that, and I don’t need the shelves to move.
I figured it was best to make all the uprights, and do the shelves as smaller pieces. I don’t have a dado kit, but this would be a good excuse for one. Would using a biscuit joiner be good enough? Wouldn’t mind buying one of those either!
I have most basic tools and wouldn’t mind expanding my selection. Not looking for this to be a work of art, I will probably make it out of pine or poplar and paint it something fun for her. So hit me with some slick suggestions if you wouldnt mind please.
Thanks for the advice!
