Ive got three book cases to glue up, each 86” tall 39” wide by 12” deep . Made from 3/4 maple ply w/ 1/4 maple back. Top and back are rabetted and five inches up from the bottom is dadoed for bottom shelf. I will be spraying 3 coats of amber shellac as a finish.

My question is how would you goanout the glue up? Would you glue top and bottom then spray or would you do top bottom And back then spray?

trz, I haven’t got an answer about a glue-up plan but I like the variety of our language and am interested in increasing my vocabulary of idioms. I’d never heard the expression, “goanout” before. What does it mean ?

If it was a typo and you meant, “go about,” or some such I apologize, but I did see some references to “goanout” on the web but no appropriate definitions.

Pretty sure he meant “go about”, or it could be redneck slang for “going out”. For example; Me an my girl are goanout to the movies. LOL

Crap! I just fell out of my chair.

If it were me, I would glue the top and bottom up and spray it. I would spray the back by itself then attach them together once it’s dry. I think it would be less chance of getting too much build-up in the corners that way.

I wouldn’t glue the back on I would just brad nail it. If it were in my shop that’s how I would tackle it.
