10 I used 2″ trim nails to hold the back legs in place, using the loose back to help locate the legs. 11 The front legs are attached the same way, and then recessed using a nail set. 12 The top is screwed in place with L-shaped brackets at the front of the case (between the side and top) and up through the back rail at the rear of the case. My Books Don't Fit! One of the things I love about this project is it's adaptability. The height and width of the bookcase are purely arbitrary. The depth works well with the material sizes available from the home center stores, but the case could easily be another foot taller, or shorter.
8 A rabbet cut on the inside edge of each back leg allows the back to be slid into place. When I attached the back legs, I used the back itself to help space the legs. It allowed a ¾″ overhang of the legs to the interior of the case. Just right. The back slips into place between the back legs and the case itself. Leave it loose for now to make finishing easier. Eventually it will be nailed in place to the lower shelf and to the final piece of wood: the back rail. This is simply a strip nailed in place between the sides to add a little stability and give us a place to attach the back.
Next, press the two half-lap notches in the upper stretchers together, joining the two partial frames together at the top. To attach the lower stretchers, connect the two notches on the loose, lower stretchers and then fit the joined pieces into place on the leg frames. I oriented the notches so the joint on the lower stretchers was opposite from the joint on the upper stretchers, adding more stability to the base. With the base near completion, take the clamps off your tabletop and mark out the 16″-diameter circle on the top.
