Bookcases are available with different quantities of shelves. Some bookcases have four shelves while others have six or more. A shopper may want to think about the size of his or her book collection before purchasing a particular bookcase. A bookcase must have enough shelves to accommodate all of the books in a person`s collection and even have some room leftover for new additions!
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.
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.
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.
