How to Build a Bookshelf

How to Build a Bookshelf |Adventures of a DIY Mom My 6 year old has been bugging me about having a bookshelf in her room for ages. All the other kids have one, so she felt left out. I finally made one for her for her birthday. That was back in July – I’m just now getting to the tutorial. I actually built and painted it all on the 4th of July. I know… I’m not a very exciting mom, but my daughter was at her cousins for the week and that’s the only day I could do it and have it be a surprise. Plus my husband was working, so other than a bbq that night we didn’t have any fun plans. It makes for a long day, but you can totally finish it all in one day. This bookshelf is a variation of my son’s bookshelf. Here’s what you need: 2 – 1 X 12 boards 8′ long 1 – 1 X 3 board 1 sheet 1/4″ backing 24″ X 48″ 1 1/4″ screws small finish nails wood glue primer paint measuring tape drill miter saw/circular saw/table saw kreg jig sandpaper pencil Here’s your cut list: 2 sides – 1 X 12 @ 33 1/2″ 1 top – 1 X 12 @24″ 3 shelves – 1 X 12 @ 22 1/2″ 1 back – 24″ X 31 1/2″ 1 footer – 1 X 3 @22 1/2″ To begin, lets start by cutting our top and sides. You can get this out of one board. Next drill your pocket holes into the top of both of your side boards. I like to have a scrap of wafer board or something similar on the bottom of the jig so that my clamp doesn’t dent up the wood. I like to do four holes, two at each end. Next attach the top to the sides using a little wood glue and screws. It helps to have a extra pair of hands to help. This is what it should look like so far. Next cut your shelves out of your other 1 X 12. Then drill holes on both ends of each board. Then start screwing them in place adding a little wood glue to the ends of the shelves. If my measurements are correct there should be 9 1/2″ between each shelf. I basically measured, drew a line and then placed the shelf on the line. I started with the bottom, then I did the top shelf and then the middle. The spaces between each of the shelves didn’t end up exactly the same, but they are straight so I guess that’s good enough 🙂 Now it’s time to add the footer. You’ll want to measure your bookshelf. It might be a little different than the cut list measurement. Mine was slightly longer and I had to cut another. Add two pocket holes to each end. Add a little wood glue and screw in place. Now all we need is to add the back. Just cut it to length. I like to leave the space under the bottom shelf open in the back. So if you’re wondering why it doesn’t cover all the way to the bottom that is why. I decided to paint first then attach the back after. It just makes painting a little easier. I painted the back white for a little contrast. And of course it had to be pink for my princess. Does this look like something you could tackle? What color would you paint yours?
