I started with three flatpack boxes of bookcases. I spent the entire morning trying to get the first one to go together. I only had to take it apart once and put the sides right way round. The second and third only took an hour each to put together. With only one smashed finger and several damp hankies, I finally, got them up and installed. I now declare myself an expert!
I did discover a great trick for getting the screws to go into the pre-drilled holes. I got some bamboo skewers and poked them in while the whole thing was on the ground. That made the sides, top, and bottom stand up while I replaced each skewer with a proper screw. Yea me! I felt so clever.
So here is the project:
