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.
Another consideration is the construction of a bookcase. Most bookcases with glass doors are wooden. There are bookcases made out of maple. oak. and mahogany as well as other types of wood. Once again. a shopper`s decision depends on his or her personal tastes and visions for the look of the room where the bookcase will be. Regardless of its type of wood. a bookcase should be well-built and sturdy.
Remember. when it comes to selecting an antique bookcase. you must go for ones with glamor and style. Nothing beats the presence of an attractive bookcase that serves its purpose with precision and style.
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.
