Our bookcase products come in a wide range of models. The dowel models manufactured by The Wood Shed are made using kiln dried red oak lumber and dowels made to our specifications. The dowels are turned and sanded to a dimension a little larger than the holes that are drilled into the sides. The combination of glue and the compression fit holds the unit together with no need of screws or nails to distract from the appearance of our quality products. The cabinet models manufactured by The Wood Shed are truly fine quality pieces of furniture. They are manufactured using only top grade, kiln dried red oak lumber. There are no screws used in the assembly of our products. All joints are tongue in groove construction. This is one of the strongest construction methods and makes it possible to assemble a piece of furniture without having the heads of screws showing to detract from the appearance. We also make some units that combine the lower cost of dowel shelves with the more finished look of a cabinet model. To view a short video showing how our products are made, view the video below.
We recommend that, if you need to move the dowel units after they are installed, you should remove your CD's, DVD's, etc from the storage racks before attempting to move them. Trying to move them loaded could stress the glue joints and cause them to come partially or completely apart.
