Holes permit wood panels to be joined together using screws. They are able to be joined end-to-end or at 90-degrees. Holes may be drilled manually using a little jig or using a device.

Turn on the drill and drive ahead, toward your body. The drill will penetrate down out and at a shallow angle through the front-edge of the panel.
Drill four-pocket holes spaced on the ends of all panels. Two of the panels will be the sides, three are the shelves. They’re the same dimensions.
Stand two panels that are quick and the two extended panels on their edges to to make a body of 36 by 72-inches. The quick panels using the pocket holes should be about the inside of the panels that are extended.
Separate the panels somewhat and run a bead of glue-down the ends of the panels that are shorter. Put the body straight back together. Flush most of the ends. Place one 48-inch clamp on the other side of bottom and the best and tighten.
Insert screws in to every one of the holes. Use the gun to sink every one of the screws in limited, securing the panels. Leave the clamp on for one hour to permit the glue dry.
Remove the clamps. Run a bead of on-the-edge of the body round the perimeter. Place the 1/4inch plywood on the body. Square it on all sides. Shoot pin nails down through the plywood spaced 4″ aside to secure it to the body.
Turn the book case over face up. Measure four equivalent spaces within the book-case for the shelves. Mark the areas on both sides on-the-edge of the frame. Drop the shelves in one a-T a period. Use a tri- to get them straight. Place screws in the pocket holes in utilizing the gun and generate the screws.
Transfer the measurements of the book case shelves to the sides of the book case utilizing the tri- . Flip over the book-case and transfer the measurement to the underside. Place a straight edge on the other side of the trunk of the book case on the lines to to point where the straight back of the shelves come in to experience of the plywood. Draw a-line on the other side of the trunk of the book-case utilizing the straight edge. Pin nails throughout the plywood on the line spaced 4″ apart to secure the shelves.
Turn the bookcase encounter-up. Run a bead of glue over the trunk of every oak strip and location the strips on the front-edge of the book-case in their own places. Pin nails through the strips spaced 6″ aside.
Putty every one of the nail holes utilizing a putty knife and also wood putty. Sand the book-case spherical and smooth each of the edges utilizing 100-grit sand-paper as well as a hand-block. The book case is now prepared for stain and lacquer.
