Technical Information for Building a Wood Bookcase
Scale Top A to the drawing dimension size. This can be accomplished by measuring the print out of the project and dividing that size into the dimension size shown on the drawing, or listed in the Bill of Materials. This will give a “Multi-Factor” that can be used to figure the enlargement size for the pattern.
Take the drawing printout and the multi-factor to a printing company. Most printing companies that do duplicating can make the enlargement required for the pattern.
The same multi-factor can be used to determine the enlargements for the other shapes B & E.
Trace the pattern enlargements onto poster board or Mylar and cut out the patterns with a pair of scissors.
Use these patterns to trace the shapes onto the wood stock.
