The prints were clear and easy to follow. The hardware kit with the plastic hinges I returned as unsatisfactory. The flipper door hardware will be ordered when I get ready to build the bookcase.

Unless you use a router to cut a deep slot in the top before assembly, the only option is to cut an ugly miter along the front of the door. Also it would be nice to have a metal set.

I was very disappointed with this...

I was very disappointed with this plan, and the plastic hardware kit as well. There are several dimensions that are differnt in the cut list and the diagrams. If you decide to build this, check both carefully to determine which is correct or you will waste material. This project is very tool intensive, check to be sure you have all of the necessary tools and especially router bits before beginning. The top calls for a bit that I was unable to find. My biggest complaint with the design was that it calls for building large assenblies and then performing intricate profiling on the assembly. In many cases the component parts could have had details added before the sub assembly was put together which would leave more room for error. One slip of the router could be reason to scrap an entire assembly. With a little more thought this could be avoided. This project uses some fairly complex jointery, including mortise and tenon and several stopped dado's but at the end of the day the basic structure is held together with screws. I think that could be improved. My last issue had to do with finishing. While the plan calls for building the project from walnut and using a tung oil finish, if you choose to use a differnt species and finish, as i did, there is alot of extra work involved, as you really have to apply the stain on many of the parts before assembly.
