In this third of four articles on starting out, Roger Holmes explores the varieties of bookshelf joints. Box joinery can be as complex or simple as your skill and patience permit; he explains how to make a tongue-and-groove bookshelf that’s strong and easy to assemble. He recommends dadoing by hand and explains how to plow the grooves in the joints. Side information details how to do the same work with machines, instead of hand tools.
