Can someone offer me advice, please? Basically I'd like the
appearance of a floating panel bookcase, but with the shelves anchored
to the sides for extra strength.
What is the usual way to do this? Maybe add an extra rail inside the
panel to hold the sliding dovetail?
Thanks! Those are nice pictures and methods on that page.
I guess what was confusing me was how to anchor the sides of the
shelves, since the sides of the bookcase are floating panels. After
thinking about it some more, I guess I'll just put dovetail sockets on
the front and back stiles, and put short dovetail pins on the front
and back of the shelves. I'll glue the front joint only and leave the
back free to move. And I guess I need to be careful about the order
of assembly ...
