Gluing up the sides bottom and rails

Cut the remaining pieces of the bookcase carcase to sizeā€”the bottom, the rails, and the back panel. Next, saw a rabbet along the back edges of the sides and bottom for the back panel. Cut blind tenons at both ends of the back rail (page 59) and drill a matching mortise (page 58) on the inside face of each side panel. With a plate joiner, make slots for biscuits in the front and bottom rails, and mating ones in the sides. Use half-blind dovetails (page 109) to join the sides to the bottom of the bookcase, cutting the pins in the sides and the tails in the bottom. Then spread glue on the contacting surfaces of all the pieces, inserting wood biscuits where appropriate, and fit them together. Protecting the stock with wood pads, install two bar clamps across each side, positioning the clamp jaws on the front and back rails, then install two more clamps across the back and bottom rails. Tighten the clamps evenly (left) until a thin glue bead squeezes out of the joints. Finally, nail the back panel (page 115) in place.
