    Built In Book Cases

    I just finished building a book case in my office. For securing the sides, top, and the frame itself I used a Kreg Junior. It is a great tool and makes the work of securing the boards easier and guarantees the boards are flush without worrying about the screws going through at an angle.

For the outside framing, I used the Kreg Junior once again to first build and assemble the framing (using 1" x 2", pre-primed) then installed as one piece. I've attached the before and after photos along with the hardware that I used on the drawers and doors.
