I picked up some of that maple finish melamine from the Borg and plan to
use it to build a bookshelf. I need it to be knockdown so what is the best
type of hardware to use? I usually see stuff with the cam type hardware but
doesn't that require one end of the "stud" to be threaded into the edge of
the piece? Not sure if I can make those threads. Appreciate any input from

The camming hardware, also called "minifix" I think, will work. The
stud simply screws into a hole that's drilled into an edge, no tapping
required. You may need a forstner-type bit and a jig to locate your
drilling points for the cams, but it's no big deal. Tom
