I can't see a problem with hollow core sides, all you need is some wood
between the skins for the shelf pin holes. I do it all the time.
The problem is your desire to have moveable shelves...easy to hide the wire
for a fixed shelf, pretty hard for a moveable one (FWIW and IME moveable
shelves almost never get moved). However, the only way I can think of to do
it is to have a race routed in the side(s) or back, partially fill that race
with a strip of wood that is in sections...if you gotta move a shelf, juggle
the sections so the wire exits where you want it.
That is so true, but it is the initial setup that we want that
adjustability for. Different size books, displays , whatever. After that
no one moves it.. agreed.
However, the only way I can think of to do
What I think I might do is take Swingman's idea, add 1/2 ply ...
So take the existing 3/4 inch panels I have already cut, route part of
the channel in the 3/4,
route the rest of the race in the 1/2 leaving about a 1/4" of thickness
for the lip that hides the wire. Hopefully that would be enough
thickness. I can glue the 3/4 and 1/2 together using either cauls or
vacum bagging, but the vac bag might break the lip... there's a lot of
force in vac bagging.
