Supplies: Supplies you’ll need for this project include:
6″ – 12″ clamps Circular Saw (aka Skilsaw) Jigsaw (with a “metal-thick” blade) 3/4″ countertop or shelf plywood (at least a 30″ long x 17″ wide sheet — I used wood I had on hand) 3 metal flats each having a base flap that’s 1″ or less thorough (to connect it to the shelves) — I used an old napkin holder I had available that I originally bought at Goodwill Sandpaper (150-220+ grits) A level and/or speed square (I ended up employing a speed square) Measuring tape Drill (with drill bits — I used a Phillips head bit for the screws) 1 1/2″ Construction or Wood screws, or nails if you favor (I used screws) Wood glue Painter’s tape 2 Keyhole hangers (not pictured) for mounting the bookshelf to the wall Optional: drum sander Optional: Wood filler (to cover screw holes, but I found that you simply couldn’t see them within the finished piece) Optional: magnets to carry book covers to the metal (but, again, I found that these were unnecessary within the finished piece) Optional: hammer (if using nails rather than screws) Optional: paint, stain, or other finishings
