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.
There are several vital factors that you need to put into consideration before you buy or build a bookcase. First. think of the various features you want them to have. Then. consider the height of the bookcases and you can have them as high as the ceiling. They can either be closed or open and they can have a glass or wood door. The door will protect your books from elements like sunlight or dust. The doors can also come with a lock which will ensure safety of your valuables.
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.
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.
