Shelves Part 2

I continue working with those folding shelves. Talk about cheap. The pieces were laid on on a pattern, with glue on the ends, stapled together, then pinned together with tacks. Even then the pieces didn't always fit, so they were wood puttied together. When you hear about cheap Chinese shit, this is what they're talking about.

Yesterday's joints came out both tighter and worse than my first joints. Measuring was the primary issue. I didn't scribe my lines very well. I think that I'll do better if I change my knife as a box cutter isn't quite giving me a nice enough line. The next time that I'm to a hardware store, I'll have to pick up a scribing knife.

Don't believe for a second that I'm doing a first class job. I'm not. This project is for me to develop skill and make mistakes, and I guarantee you, I am making mistakes.
