Three Tools - I assume that most people attempting their first bookcase project will not have a complete set of woodworking power tools in their shop - things like a table saw. drill press. router table. planer. and all that. What I do think first-time builders might (and should) have is a circular saw. a router. and a power drill. It`s pretty amazing what you can build with just a few reasonably-priced tools.
Fitting your space. There are many contemporary designs for bookcases today where you can have bookcases of varying sizes and shapes to fit any limited space in your environment; hence. bookcases can come in various heights. widths and lengths that can cater for all types of reading and storage materials. especially when they are custom made.
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.
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.
