Been a long time coming. Been a long year with many distractions from my Paul Sellers inspired bookcase I started a year ago. I was so close back then. Had all the shelves made and hand cut the dados and fitted the shelves. Just needed to add in the cross rails. I had even cut the rails and put on the tennons. Tonight, a year later, I just buckled down and laid out one of the center rail mortises and chopped it out. Fits good enough and is square. Hopefully, it won’t take me another year to finish. I have stacks of old woodworking books waiting for a proper home. Wish me luck.
2 rails fit on one side.
