This is a (very) preliminary design fro a "bridge" to join two bookcase uni
ts I built. The bottom of this unit will be seen; the top and sides will no
t. It would be approximately 48" x 23" x 12" deep.
The bottom drawing shows the face frame as it would be seen; the top drawin
g is the plywood cabinet that would go behind it. I'm wondering if ...
1. The dado layout shown is sensible.
2. The dado layout shown will prove too complex for me to glue up properly
in the allotted time.
Regarding (2.), I have made another diagram the shows the order I think I w
ould need to glue up the pieces in:
First the 4 Red pieces
Then the Orange piece
Then the two Yellow pieces
Then the two Green pieces
Lastly, the Blue piece.
[aside: Did anyone else learn the resistor color code? And yes, I know I le
ft out Black and Brown. And yes, I have heard all of the various off-color
mnemonics for it. And no, I won't be reproducing them here] :)
Maybe the blue piece should go on earlier? I think maybe it should, but I'm
too lazy to redo the screenshot. The clamping would be a little tricky too
, especially with my modest inventory. Does anyone ever clamp a box like th
is with it standing vertically? I'm guessing not; too easy to have it end u
As always, advice would be appreciated.
