Before even selecting the wood to use, I’d take a roll of painter’s tape and layout the shelf design on the wall. Determine where and how many shelves you’d like. The good thing about the tape is that you are able to move and adjust your design without doing any damage to the walls.

If you use a painter’s tape that is the thickness of the boards you want to use you’ll be able to measure out the board feet you need to some degree of accuracy. After that I’d consider pocket screws or biscuits to join the boards.
