Rocket bookcase

Submitted by smasumur on Tue, 05/03/2011 - 20:22

The Kreg jig made this project a snap to assemble. The shelves attach quickly with pocket holes. I wondered how to line up a screw from the inside of the bookcase with the fin when my husband pointed out that pocket holes would work well. Sure enough, 30 minutes later I had two fins drilled, attached, puttied, sanded and painted. I love my Kreg jig! I made this bookcase for an auction, which is why it's sitting next to a fancy vase on a table
(in case you're wondering about the photo).
