This project is a double sided bookcase trolley for a church. It was to be made in solid oak and to be finished in oil.
Here I’m getting the oak ready to be sawn. The sapwood is marked to be cut off also the next cut is marked along the line of a split. Even if the wood wasn’t already split it would have to be cut somewhere around this point as I can’t plane more than 12 inches wide.
The oak for the ends of the bookcase has now been now planed and thicknessed. The edges have been planed straight, glued and cramped up.
Next they need sanding smooth, planing and cutting to size.
I’ve made a router jig for cutting the joints. This is cramped onto the ends of the bookcase to guide the router to produce the grooves for one shelf. It is then repositioned to cut the grooves for the next shelf
The grooves are now cut in the underside of the top and the shelves to take the panels which fit at the back of the shelves.
The shelves are now glued up and cramped together on end.
The finished item. The bookcase has been polished with Liberon Finishing Oil and then rubbed down with 320 grit abrasive paper and wax polished
