Two clearance holes through one of the top stretchers allowed me to attach the top to the base with screws. I oriented the top with the grain running parallel to the stretcher that I put the attaching screws through, avoiding concerns of wood movement. A couple of coats of an exterior-grade paint and the project was done. i44 44 9/23/10 4:25:05 PM PINE BOOKCA SE 6 About ten years ago I was given a set of old house windows. Pine frame, diamond-patterned mullions, in decent shape. They sat in my garage for a while until one weekend I was feeling creative and decided they’d make nice doors on a glass-front bookcase.
I checked price and saw that the select pine was three times as much. Poplar? Right up there with the select pine. So I picked through the cheaper boards to find the best. After carefully matching the boards for best edges (for glueup) and for grain match, I glued the panels for the top, the shelves and for the two sides. The shelves and two sides are sized to finish at 11"-wide, which is two 1×6s glued together. The top was two 1×8s that were then ripped to finish width. PUTTING IT TOGETHER Construction was pretty straightforward.
The one shown in photo 11 gets used a lot. The rounded face works great for corbels, and the flat side smooths out the transition from round-to-flat on the piece. The next step is to assemble the base frames. To do this, I used countersunk and plugged screws through the edges of the legs and into the ends of the stretchers. Because the legs are 11∕2" wide, I needed to use 21∕2" screws to make a solid joint. I adjusted the length of my countersink bit to make sure I would properly pre-drill the hole.
