Carl Sagan is quoted as saying, “If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent [or ‘create’] the universe.” My bookshelf project feels a bit like that. Every step seems to raise new challenges so it has been slow going.
So far, I’ve managed to cut the plywood panels for both sides and the slots for shelf supports on one side. Lots of learning is going on. For example, if you want to rout a slot in a piece of wood without it tearing out at the edges, a straightforward solution is to put some waste wood strips down either side. Then, of course, each solution raises new problems – how do I clamp this all up?
Progress has been slow but, I suppose, at least it is progress.
