Frank Klausz demonstrates building a knock down plywood bookcase using biscuit joinery, from raw stock, through edge banding, to finishing. His use of the biscuit jointer will be refreshingly new if you've only seen how Norm uses it. The design is simple and efficient, yielding one bookcase with 4 shelves from a single sheet of 3/4" plywood and a 1/4" back sheet. You'll need additional material for two more shelves to finish out the project. The knock down construction, using biscuits to aid alignment is a nice feature and an uncomplicated enhancement. The contruction and techniques demonstrated are easily applied to cabinets and carcases in general, which he also discusses briefly.
