I`ve done a fair amount of researching on the Web. and I`ve come up with some pretty simple guidelines for approaching this kind of wood project. Overall. the good news is that you don`t have to be a hard-core woodworker to pull this thing off. In fact. a bookcase is a perfect starter project for someone just getting into building stuff from wood. Maybe it`s a little more challenging than making a sawhorse (which is also a good plan to start with). but I think it`s important for beginners to make something they can be excited about when it`s all said and done. So let`s get started with some of the basics of building a bookcase.
The color of a bookcase is the next feature to consider. Many people like to choose bookcases that coordinate with the rest of the furnishings in a room. For instance. if a person has a collection of furniture in light-colored oak. he or she may opt for a bookcase made with the same material. There are bookcases that feature colors such as brown. black. espresso. cream. and even weathered white. There are so many colors available a shopper is sure to find just what he or she is looking for.
Modular Bookcases - Modular bookcases are good for any type of room. They come in sets that can be stacked to create a tall bookcase that will utilize wall space. or they can be stretched out along or across a room to utilize floor space. They can even be separated so each unit is a single bookcase. This feature allows them to be used as a bookcase as well as serve as beautification for the room. So these bookcases can be said to be multifunctional. They come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes from traditional squares to contemporary triangles.
Power Drill - Everybody has a power drill of some sort sitting around in the basement or garage. You already know how much use (and abuse) this tool gets for literally hundreds of jobs around the house. Although it`s possible to build a simple bookcase without ever picking up a power drill. the no-screws approach to building a bookcase requires that you own an insanely large number of clamps to hold everything together while the glue dries. Really. we`re talking about 20 clamps or more at about $20 each. Ouch. At a fraction of the cost. you can unleash the same clamping power on wood joints by using wood screws (or even nails) to hold pieces together while the glue sets up. Of course. you`ll have holes all over everywhere. but most people just fill them in with putty and they look fine.
