Thread: Bookcase

  1. #1

    Bookcase

    I finally got started on the bookcase that wanted to build for the extra bed/computer room. I went through many plans until I found one that I liked and that I could make work with the tools available to me. The plans that I found is for a 3' bookcase, I am building a 6' one, so I had to make modifications. I started it last week by building the sides and hope to get some more done this weekend. It is currently raining, being that I do my work outside, that ruins things for now. I will post updates.
    So mote it be.

    Are the shelves going to be 6' long? That's really long and you will get lots of sag if you don't have some support.

    And one other thing. NO PICS, DIDN'T HAPPEN!

    I knocked out quite a bit today, I took pics but don't have time to post them now.

    The ache in my back tells me that IT DID HAPPEN.

    I will post some pics tomorrow, until then, you'll just have to take my word for it.

    Gee, my shop is just like yours. A bit cold and drafty today.

    Here are a few pics of my bookcase build. As you can see, I work outside and then brought the bookcase into the living room where it now sits until this weekend.
