Plan the project

Good preparation makes things easier. Try to create a draft that is as detailed as possible. It is important to have a clear idea of the proportions in order to be able to specify the dimensions.

For this project you need boards that must have the same depth. to accommodate small books in the shelf, I choose a depth of 160 mm.

Pay attension to accurancy

When cutting the wood, make sure that the results are accurate. This makes it easier to join the boards and you don't have to do a lot of re-sizing.

Test for fit

Lay the boards together on a table and check that the individual lengths fit together exactly. If it doesn't fit, you can still tweak it by trimming it again.

Ad a chamfer for the back panels
