I took photos at just about every stage of makign the bookcase and I'll write them up with instructions for everyone I've promised details of PatentPlanking. It's pretty quick; we went to Homebase at 3 for the planks and since we got back I've written 700 words and we've had a barbecue and put up cork edgings to some of the office shelves and I cut the wood for the DVD bookcase at the same time. And I had to keep stopping myself reading the books I took off the shelf I was joining on to so I could fit the drill into place. So probably about 2 hours making time, tops... Tired now!
pet peeve: wood with so much sap in that the planks are stuck together
