About this deal

Also, the window seat would provide a little extra underneath cabinet storage, which is a pretty cool feature. I was a little worried that this would not be enough depth to sit comfortably on, but a few trial sittings on 15” planks of wood proved to be acceptable. I used the same technique as the first bookshelf I built in our old home – dado grooves to support the shelves, cut with a standard plunge router. With a storage-and-display solution you, get the best out of both worlds. Hide the clutter inside the cabinet and display your favourite belongings in the open section. By choosing glass doors in the open section, you can place things you want to both display and protect. It could be your favourite porcelain or glasses that only are used on special occasions. Bookcases for every inch of your home

The use of my oscillating multi-tool helped out here to remove just enough baseboard, leaving the rest intact, so that the bookshelf would seamlessly blend in. As mentioned earlier, it was a few inches longer than the first one and would have to be constructed in the bedroom, rather than in the garage. Not because of quality – but because we didn’t realize that a natural paint would hold up just as well and not expose us to any chemicals.I settled on a very simple yet effective method. I was just going to build a wooden duct into the foundation frame, and seal the inside edges with caulk to make it air-tight.

With all the materials on hand, I embarked on building these bookcases with a window seat. Removing Carpeting After the pieces were put together to assemble the bookshelf, I set it in place using the same steps I went through for the first bookshelf (securing to the wall and to the foundation frame). So I measured the angle of the crown molding (the angle it would make with the wall) and ripped some 2 x 4s with my table saw to match this angle. Here is a picture of the end result (a louvered vent would be inserted into the front hole, which I cut out with my trusty jigsaw):Then, with the help of Eileen, we carried the bookshelf upstairs and set it in place. Getting the shelf upstairs was no easy task, by the way. Love shelves just as much as we do?! Make these sliding storage shelves that are perfect for the garage or basement. They hold a TON! Then using some scrap wood, I built a simple jig for my router to speed up the cutting and make all the dados identical. Eileen hopped in at this point to take over the painting. She painted all remaining wood – going over the edges, getting the trim, and touching up areas here and here. To start, I ran three 2 x 4’s across the top of the bookshelves (in between the top front of the bookshelves and the ceiling).

A bookcase or bookshelf is an essential piece of furniture in almost every home. If it's not for a home library, it can be a home for your children's toys. And if it's not toys, you can use it for important papers and folders in a home office. The options are endless. I strongly considered using melamine-covered particle board for the shelves, but instead opted for some good quality birch plywood. After the dados were all cut, I started attaching the individual shelves. To do this, I first applied some construction adhesive to the side of a shelf.I collected all the measurements I needed to cover all the exposed areas and got to work in the garage cutting the trim. Even though it would be a small shelf, Eileen felt that it would add a lot aesthetically, and there are always creative ways to decorate.
