Bookcases are available in a range of styles to meet the preferences of almost any shopper. For instance. there are bookcases made in the traditional style. Generally. these are wall bookcases that have plenty of shelves to accommodate a book collection as well as a pair of attractive glass doors. Alternatively. there are bookcases that feature a combination of styles. For example. a bookcase may double as a china cabinet. A person can store books in the case as well as display decorative knickknacks on some of the smaller shelves. There are even corner bookcases that fit neatly into the corner of a room. Some people prefer to choose a bookcase in a style that complements the other pieces of furniture in a room.
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.
A built in bookcase looks so similar to a shelving that is built to the wall or it may resemble a custom built unit that comes with doors. You can have a huge storage space that can go up to the ceiling for the bookcase. Having built in bookcases in your home is like investing in the future and it is a representative of the great value you hold for books.
Hold off on plywood shelves... this time around - Sure. plywood is nice for bookcase shelves because it doesn`t have the warping problems that plague solid wood. But plywood comes in 4x8 sheets. which means you`ll be doing a LOT of cutting to make all the pieces for a simple bookcase. For experienced woodworkers. this isn`t really a problem. They`ll first cut down the sheet into more manageable pieces (usually with a circular saw) and then head over to an $800 table saw to get things perfectly square and perfectly sized for the bookcase plan they`re following. Not that you can`t do all this with another tool (like a circular saw or jigsaw). but at some point it just becomes too much work to make a zillion cuts in plywood without the bigger. beefy tools.
