Circular Saw - A circular saw will cut just about anything you can throw at it. and with a few accessories. some fairly complicated joinery. Even if you decide later to upgrade to more expensive tools. your circular saw will always get used in the shop. For a simple bookcase. you`ll be using the circular saw to cut all the boards to length. and to help make the dado cuts that hold your bookcase shelves. You`ll also use the saw to cut down a 4x8 sheet of plywood for the bookcase back.
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.
