You'll start by building a basic case that all three bookcase styles share - with strong rabbet and dado joinery and tenon joints on the back panels. Next we'll show you how to customize the basic cabinet with face frames and trim to create one of three different looks

Simple and fast pocket-hole joinery makes assembling the face frames a snap. We've also included a step-by-step guide for using profile router bits to make your own raised panel doors (craftsman style).
