Step 1 Cut Panels
Determine the dimensions of your bookcase. Ours has 6 equally spaced openings of 13-5/16 inches. Using a table saw, rip the two 1 inch x 12 inch x 8 foot laminated pine panels to 11 inches wide for the sides. Cut a 3/8 inch x 3/8 inch rabbet on one long edge to accept cabinet back.
