Special thanks to Daryl Kaswinkel for a sketch that inspired this book case.
There are two sections to this build:
1. Making the boxes
2. Making the frame the boxes rest in
Don't use your saw without the propper equipment, training and always make sure you follow the safety instructions to prevent kickback.
Step 1: Materials
One 2x4 sheet of 1/2 inch MDF board (Medium Density Fiberboard)
Two 2x4 sheet of 1/4 inch MDF board
Step 2: Making the Sides of the Boxes
The boxes consist of 3 parts.
The Top and Bottom
Set your table saw to 5 3/8 inches and cut three lengths from the long side of the MDF. Set asside the left over section for the backs of the boxes.
Now set your saw to 8 1/4.
Subdivide the first plank into sections that are 8 1/4 inches long.
You should get 5 per plank and little scrap left over.
Subdivide the second plank to get your final 3 sections.
You need 8 of these.
8 1/4 x 5 3/8 (x8)
Step 3: Making the Top and Bottom of the Boxes.
Use the Third Plank and subdivide it until you have 8 pieces at 5 3/8 x 7 3/4 (x8)
5 3/8 x 7 3/4 (x8)
Step 4: Making the Backs of the Boxes
7 3/4 x 7 3/4 (x4)
