Power Drill - Everybody has a power drill of some sort sitting around in the basement or garage. You already know how much use (and abuse) this tool gets for literally hundreds of jobs around the house. Although it`s possible to build a simple bookcase without ever picking up a power drill. the no-screws approach to building a bookcase requires that you own an insanely large number of clamps to hold everything together while the glue dries. Really. we`re talking about 20 clamps or more at about $20 each. Ouch. At a fraction of the cost. you can unleash the same clamping power on wood joints by using wood screws (or even nails) to hold pieces together while the glue sets up. Of course. you`ll have holes all over everywhere. but most people just fill them in with putty and they look fine.
There are two main states in which you can purchase your antique bookcases. You can go for a built in bookcase or you can go for one which is free standing. Take into account the various widths and heights your require. Their designs are known to be very versatile and you can get to move or rearrange individual units as desired. Therefore. they can be combined to meet any room dimension.
Plywood vs Solid Wood Shelves - Choosing the right wood for a bookcase plan can be a big topic to get your arms around. especially if you start reading the zillions of articles online about wood species and wood grades. plywood construction. shelving span calculators. etc.. etc. This is all good stuff. but for now. let me narrow down the choices for a first-time bookcase project.
Bookcase Plans - How to Build a Bookcase With 3 Tools. Before committing myself to a set of bookcase plans. I first decided to shop around for a pre-fab bookshelf. both online and at a few discount furniture stores in town. My plan was to look at a wide range of styles and prices before deciding what to buy. It didn`t take me long to discover that I really had only two choices in the matter; buy somewhat expensive crappy particle board bookcases with fake wood laminate. or buy very expensive wood bookcases that will stay in my family for the next 100 years. The good stuff would be nice. but since I can`t afford to spend $800 at Ethan Allen right now. I`m really left with just one option: the somewhat expensive crappy bookcases. It`s disappointing to think this is my only choice.
