HARDWARE FROM LEE VALLEY
With a tip of the hat to Rich, the number for the mortise lock from Lee Valley has been changed. The new number is
Lee Valley is also showing the hinges I specified as out of stock. They do have a similar hinge that is 2 1/2″ (instead of 3″) and I don’t think it will make a difference practically or visually. Rockler does have a 3″ hinge that I often use.
For what it’s worth I just ran downstairs to measure the hinges in my bookcase. I only used two instead of three (shame on me). My door does have a slight bow that the third hinge would likely help.

LUMBER FROM FRANK MILLER
You can order your material from Frank Miller Lumber and have it delivered to the school. Because you will be ordering sight-unseen and won’t be able to pick through the stock, I highly recommend ordering more than you need, at least 60 board feet. FML will pull the stock from their pile and won’t cut anything so you will receive a few more board feet than you ordered. Their normal QSWO material isn’t very wide. 7″ and wider is available at a slight upcharge. There are a lot of narrow pieces in the bookcase so I recommend that you split the order 50/50 between the regular and wide material. Here are a few important points:
- Tell them you are enrolled in my class at Marc Adams
- Have the material delivered to the school the week before the class, but not sooner.
SKETCHUP MODEL OF NO. 700 BOOKCASE AVAILABLE IN THE 3D WAREHOUSE
I will also be conducting a workshop at the Alabama Woodworker’s Guild April 7-8 where I will build a smaller version of this bookcase. Click Here for Details.
A PDF file of the information packet sent from the school is available. Click Here to Download Class Information.
I will post answers to frequently asked questions about this project here, and will also post my SketchUp model and shop drawings sometime this spring. If you have a question, click my signature at the end of this post to send me an e-mail, or leave a comment below.
Thanks for enrolling in this class at MASW, I’m looking forward to meeting all of you and having a great week!
