  • Q: How do I make a storage cube?

    I need to know how the dividers and shelves are attached to one another. I was going to use dowels, but is there another way. I will be using 3/4" pine. Thanks

    make individual  cubes to whatever size you need and some half width to break up the pattern and screw them to each other.  This doubles the strength of trying to divide shelves.  You can use them as a bookcase against a wall or as a room divider

    The simplest way to fix those storage Sydney cubes together is by the traditional nail or screws and hammer method. However, if you do not wish to permanently ‘scar’ them, then you could try to get an adhesive agent. However, you need to get one that is specifically for pine so that they would stay strongly glued together for a longer span of time. These are the less expensive techniques you could try first before experimenting with other more costly means like cutting and moulding edges to be attached together.

    I'd say that - short of cutting dados in the sides of the cube and fitting the shelves into those - the easiest way might be to countersink some screws from the cube side into the shelves, then cover those screw heads over with plugs. Here's the one caveat however: store-bought plugs and dowels aren't always the exact width they say they are. Sitting on a shelf for weeks or months can lead to expansion or contraction that effectively changes the diameter of the plugs enough to make it a bear to fit it into a hole of the seemingly appropriate size.

     

    Best bet is to cut your own plugs using a plug cutter at your drill press, then setting the plug free at a bandsaw, or with a jigsaw (in a pinch) as long as you've got your workpiece firmly clamped down.

    Hmmm, I smell a blog post in my very near future:)

    Best,
