    You took the time to explain how to drill the holes how to predrill for the holes how many to put how to secure the shelves together, seems to me that most people would be able to figure that out, other than the hint on how to use the claps to hold them in place. I think a begginer would want to know how in the world would you go about flipping to the other side, why did you not show how to do that?

      Thank you for your inquiry. Although this might seem like a straightforward exercise for experienced woodworkers, many people struggle with these concepts the first time they try to assemble a large carcase. Therefore we felt it would be helpful to demonstrate the pre-drilling and screw fastening operations, and the benefit of having a dedicated tool set up for each task (drill for pre-drilling and impact driver for driving screws). In these short free video clips we often constrain the focus to a narrow set of tasks such as those shown here. We have a number of full length videos that show cabinet construction from end to end, so we did not feel that it was necessary to try to cover the full spectrum of tasks in this short clip.
      We appreciate your suggestions! Paul

    This video on assembling a large carcase was interesting and informative. However, I was waiting in anticipation for the large CARCASS that the lead line of the video referred to. Did I miss it?

    I understand it is quicker but a few dados would make it a whole lot stronger and easier to assemble.

    I’ve been shopping for decent counter sink drill bits. What type and brand counter sink is George using in this video? Thanks in advance!

    I know your way is faster but a few dados would make it a lot stronger and easier to assemble.

    HI, you had a few questions asked but as yet not answered. By the dates shown they must have been seen since one of your answers were on a much later date than the date of one of the unanswered question (May 3). Once they are answered will you please send me an email so I can view your answers?

    Because your fasteners are going into particle board, I would have recommended a different type of screw (deeper threads with a wider pitch), and one that was at least 3 times the thickness of the material or 2-1/4 inches long. It is a real speed saver to have separate cordless drill and driver tools though.
