  1. Wood Carving
    I am in need for ideas... I have a special piece of wood that I have carved out into a hollow frame. I want to make a kid bookshelf for my firstborn child. My first instinct was to dado the shelves in with a router and jig, but my router will not fit. I am not sure if I can chisel a straight...
