Could anyone tell me the best way to make my builtin shelf fit snugly in an
alcove that has a warped or bowed back wall? I have cut my wood to length
but it rocks front to back because there is a large bow (1/8 inch approx.)
in the middle of the back wall. I have scribed it and know how much I need
to remove. My question is what is the best way to remove this sliver? Is
it snading or planing or (suggestions)?
Shelf is made of 3/4 maple ply. If there is a better method other than
scribing I'd love to hear that too.
Thanks in advance.
I am not exactly sure how you have contructed this. Is this just a single
board that you are going to fasten to the wall somehow? Are there sides
that the shelf board fits in to? Is the shelf attached to a back board that
fits into the alcove? These could be shimmed?
If that doesn't work, you could try blasting.
