About This Project

This was a great project to get back into woodworking after many years of not building anything. Used my table saw for cutting the 30 degree miters. Plans didn't call for it, but I made dado joints for the shelves using a router. This made the bookcase very solid. For the miters I cut them first and then measured and cut the piece to the finished length. I cut the vertical shelf supports after the shelves were in which insured they were the exact length. A great suggestion is to use The Hillman Group "Procrafter" #8 x 2-in Yellow Zinc Square-Drive Wood Screws. The #2 square drive never slipped out and the screws were self drilling and countersunk themselves. No need to predrill a countersink hole or anything else. Added the chimney after seeing it on another brag post. This cute little item brought a big smile to my granddaughter's face on Christmas morning. The time investment of 10 hours for me was due to rusty woodworking skills and needing time to think about things. Could probably build the next one in five hours. Painting took as long as the building.
