Solid Pine Shelves - For first-time projects. I like to use off-the-shelf dimensional lumber from the big box stores like Home Depot. Pine is relatively cheap (compared to hardwood) and is precut to standard-size widths and lengths. That means a LOT less cutting for me to get the basic pieces of my bookcase ready for assembly. Woodworkers might point out that dimensional lumber is inconsistent in width and thickness. which makes less-than-perfect woodworking joints without first planning and/or squaring the boards on a table saw. They`re right. Dimensional lumber is not perfectly square and consistent from one board to the next. But that doesn`t mean you can`t build a decent-looking bookcase otherwise. Sure. you might have some small gaps in the joinery. and maybe the case isn`t absolutely square and plumb. But more often than not. you`ll be the only one who knows any different. Save the more exacting work for nicer bookcase you`ll build next year.
So now I`m looking at some bookcase plans. which means I`d have to take on the job of building something from scratch. I`m starting to like the idea. though. First. it`s the only other option I can find to buying expensive crappy bookcases. and second. I like the idea of deciding for myself what level of quality (and expense) I want to put into the project. I don`t want a bookcase made from the cheapest materials around. but I don`t need the most expensive either. Building my own bookcase will let me create something between these two extremes.
