This instructable describes a bookshelf I made one Saturday after taking the Woodshop Basics SBU class at TechShop. It is made entirely of wood. No screws or metal was used in its construction. All of the tools I used are available at TechShop.

I made it at TechShop.

Step 1: Bookshelf Materials

For my bookshelf, I purchased from Lowes...

Two 1" x 8" x 8ft - Pine Boards
One 1" x 3" x 8ft - Pine Board
One 100 Count Container of #20 Plate Joining Biscuits
Nice job
I love your solution to those crappy little shelf support studs.... Brilliant. <br> <br>5 stars.
Awesome! Do you plan to stain and varnish it?
Thanks, I'd like to but it's currently under my desk about 1/2 full of books.&nbsp;
This came out really well, and an excellent post!
Hi Audrey, <br> <br>Thank you very much for your generous review. <br> <br>Winefred
Looks good! <br> <br>May build this as a paint rack for my workshop as I dont have dedicated shelves for my paint :-P Although it is obviously more suited as a bookshelf.
