  1. Bookcase

    This is a book shelf I built for my office. It took me about 2 months to build because of everything that kept coming up to keep me from working on it. I was so glad to finally finish. My son helped me move it to my office last night at 10 p.m. Sorry about the "side ways" pics. I rotated...
  2. Entertainment built in

    My wife has decided she wants a built in cabinet for the Big screen and some shelves for the books. I intend to build three cabinet bases with the middle one standing proud a couple inches, then add bookcase shelves on the outer two and pedestal shelves in the middle for the DVD and VCR stuff...
  3. Library

    I'm not much on building cabinetry but I let a friend talk me into building this for her. Still another piece to be built across the top on the side with the ladder. It will be a wedge piece to fill up to a cathedral ceiling. All built in 3/4" oak ply and edge taped, 1/4" oak ply back, with...
  4. The Big Bookcase

    A basic big bookshelf. 3/4 inch Oak Plywood case, tongue and dado joints, faced with solid oak. Lesson learned twice: leave room in the joint for glue! 1. The shelves fit nicely in the sides dry, I thought. After glue, had to really bang on it during final assembly. I still could not...
  5. Bookshelves

    A quick holiday project that converted an arch shaped recess in our wall to a handy set of bookshelves. I had wanted to do a much large bookcase fitted to another wall but we weren't sure so decided on this one in the meantime. I did a trim on the front of all 4 shelves with an edging, finished...
  6. Simple Bookshelf

    I've been planning this project for weeks. It's finally finished. A simple bookshelf made from pine. It's been stained with a Minwax Ebony stain.
  7. Bookshelf/ Quilt Hanger with storage

    I ended up needing a place to hang the matching quilt from our bedding in the nursery and realized that I needed a place to store teddy bears and books so I decided to build a matching quilt hanger/ bookshelf to match the other furniture I built. I looked online for inspiration and couldn't find...
  8. Matching Book Shelves

    My lumberjock brother and I made this book shelf unit to match existing book shelf. Used birch plywood and popular. Owner will paint and hang doors.
  9. bookshelf

    My first try at making a bookshelf. lots of fun and learned a lot also. Made a standard bookshelf and then placed a reveal around the front. Round-over on the front top and sides. Used red oak stain and satin polyurethane. First lesson for me, learn a new way to finish my projects. Had a...
  10. Ladder shelves and desk

    Well it's taken me 6 months of occasional work, but our ladder book shelves and desk are finally done! I got a lot of advice from Cantil3v3r and THIS POST. THANK YOU!! I used his Google Sketchup file, but modified the design. I had to add the desk unit in the middle and adjust the width of the...
  11. Hidden Bookshelf Door

    I converted an existing attic space to a hidden playroom (I will submit it as a separate project) for my girls. I have always been intrigued by doors concealed as built-in bookshelves and this was the perfect opportunity to give it a try. After much internet research of others who have done...
  12. Roycroft Bookshelf Reproductions

    My parents have been looking for a new table for their family room for months, AND I had been looking for a new project to do! So I thought I'd surprise them with one of these Roycroft Bookshelfs. I found plans in sketchup on the internets and began about 2 weeks ago. I really do love...
  13. Bookcases for Mallary

    A close friend of mine loved the farmhouse style table that I posted a few weeks back. She wanted a set of bookcases in a similar style so I went to the drawing board. I picked up the wood, pine and fir, from the local big box and joined them using my Kreg pocket hole jig. The finish is...
  14. Children's bookshelf

    Needed a place for my daughter's books. I wanted something that she could take with her when she grows up. Made from Walnut. 32" wide and high. Back is ship-lap. No plywood here! Finish details: 1 lb cut of shellac seal coat 1-2 coats of stain to match all of the different shorts I had 2 coats...
  15. Boys Bookshelf

    I made this bookshelf to match an existing store-bought piece in my youngest son's bedroom: The design is my own - the wood is soft maple, finish is a dye stain, followed by shellac and wipe-on poly. My first attempt at dovetailed drawers - they turned out okay. Except for the drawers, this...
  16. WWMM Bookshelf

    Wifey was getting a bit impatient with me for not completing (ok, starting) a book shelf for the girls room. Apparently I've been promising one for over 8 months…uh oh. So I finally decided to do something about it. Unfortunately I am both time and money poor right now, so I decided to put...
  17. Obligatory First Bookshelf

    From the few things I've read, it almost seems like a right of passage to build a set of bookshelves as one of, if not the, first project as a woodworker. The cliche wasn't enough to dissuade me. It didn't hurt that we had boxes and piles of books strewn across the house, either. I was feeling...
  18. Tree Shaped Bookshelf

    This is my first major woodworking project. I've been a lurker here for a while and I've learned a lot. Thanks for being such a great community.
  19. Craftsman Style Book Rack

    I've never been much for making projects from plans (get quite enough of that at work thank you) for I like to experiment and design on my own or build in part on others ideas. Just small stuff you know. About 90 days ago though your honor, a little cutey beckoned me with her little finger from...
  20. Soft Maple Bookshelf

    Heres another project I finished, made this for my girlfriend this last Christmas. Started Christmas eve, and finished the build that night, she was surprised to say the least. The finish took a few days to complete. Used the Maloof oil/wax three coats, then briwax two coats. Actually a lot...
