Three Tools - I assume that most people attempting their first bookcase project will not have a complete set of woodworking power tools in their shop - things like a table saw. drill press. router table. planer. and all that. What I do think first-time builders might (and should) have is a circular saw. a router. and a power drill. It`s pretty amazing what you can build with just a few reasonably-priced tools.
Solid Pine Shelves - For first-time projects. I like to use off-the-shelf dimensional lumber from the big box stores like Home Depot. Pine is relatively cheap (compared to hardwood) and is precut to standard-size widths and lengths. That means a LOT less cutting for me to get the basic pieces of my bookcase ready for assembly. Woodworkers might point out that dimensional lumber is inconsistent in width and thickness. which makes less-than-perfect woodworking joints without first planning and/or squaring the boards on a table saw. They`re right. Dimensional lumber is not perfectly square and consistent from one board to the next. But that doesn`t mean you can`t build a decent-looking bookcase otherwise. Sure. you might have some small gaps in the joinery. and maybe the case isn`t absolutely square and plumb. But more often than not. you`ll be the only one who knows any different. Save the more exacting work for nicer bookcase you`ll build next year.
The elegant crafting of the designs make the bookcases very popular to people all over the world. They are made from various hard woods like camphor. oak wood. mahogany and walnut. You can go for various sophisticated styles which come with a variety of designs. There are a number of antique bookcase styles and they include Georgian. revolving. adjustable. inlaid and many others. You will also get a variety of sizes and you can choose which bookcase suits you. Many people go for bookcases that come with several shelves because they have room for expansion for your book collection.
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.
