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.
Cutting Dadoes for Bookcase Shelves - By far the trickiest step in following bookcase plans is cutting the dadoes (that hold the book shelf ends). No need to be intimidated with this part of the project. though. If you`re really careful about setting up for the cut (that means using the right clamps and cutting guides for your router) this can be the most fun you`ll have with bookcase plans. I like to cut my dadoes assembly-line style. That is. I clamp down both sides of the bookcase side by side... so that each pass with my circular saw (and router) cuts both boards at the same time. This not only saves you tons of time and headache. it also makes sure that your shelves are perfectly aligned when you glue everything together.
Leaning bookcases - Leaning bookcases are open backed so they contrast against the wall adding visual interest. A leaning bookcase generally has an "A" frame that tapers down. Because of the "A" frame most leaning bookcases can be displayed as a corner bookcase. They provide good utilization of space and since the back is open providing a view of the wall they will also provide aesthetics.
Types of Bookcases. There are four most important types or categories of bookcases. Under these four main categories are a plethora of different bookcase styles that might fit your space. Each type comes in a number of sizes. shapes and finishes allowing you the certainty that you will find something to match your taste and current home or office decor.
