Reclaimed Oak Shelving Unit
« on: September 13, 2017, 09:04 AM »
I did a bunch of reclaimed oak pieces in the past few months, and this was the most recent.  Custom shelving unit for a TV/Guest room.  The designer provided the hardware, which is this clever steel bar/locking nut system that fits into dadoes I milled along the edges of each plank, which you can see in the close-up shots.

The planks themselves are 14" deep and 1 1/4" thick (mix of 2' and 3' lengths).  I was starting from 2x8 rough sawn joists, so I dressed all the boards separately with a mix of hand planes and the thickness planer to flatten them out and hit the approximate thickness (leaving 1/32 or so extra in case any further flattening was required after glue up).  Since my machine flattening capacity ends at 13", I did have to do some additional jointing/flattening by hand on a couple of the boards after edge joining to level out some minor cupping that had developed during glue-up.

Finally they were cut to length on the MFT and then I added 1/2" deep  5/8 dadoes on the underside with the OF2200.

Thanks.  The hardware is super custom, fabricated for the designer by a local metalshop he works with.

Nice. I like it. Was a half round dado not an option? To accept the round rods?

Good point, thanks.  I'll suggest it to the designer next time we do one of these units.  The specs he gave me were just for flat bottomed dadoes.
