And then I cut the wood and used a dado saw to make the grooves for each shelf to sit in. I didn't want the option of moving shelves later, I want these shelves to be completely built in and solid. Now I still need to:
- use a chisel (which is lost) to clean up the ends of the boards
- fill the knotholes with wood putty
- prime the boards
- glue and nail the shelves together
- paint the shelves
- attach the shelving units to one another and to the wall
Impressive, huh? Yup, that's right, all I was able to do today was stack the shelves into their seven separate piles. My next step? Find the chisel. I know, this is riveting stuff. Come back tomorrow to see, was the chisel found? Did I go above and beyond and make a trip to the hardware store to buy wood putty? I know you'll have a hard time sleeping tonight waiting to see what happens next!
