Picture of The 59 Minute Bookshelf

Let me start off by giving props to Innerbubba for his insperational 60-minute-bookcase. If I did not give him credit it would most definitely be plagiarism. His Instructable was one of the very first that I made my favorites.

It literally cost me nothing to make because I already had everything sitting around. Well OK it cost me some time, some electricity, and maybe some sweat (but not much of any of them).

You might be thinking why is his a 59 minute shelf and Innerbubbas is a 60 minute one? The answer is simple I had one less cut than he did so mine was about a minute quicker to make.

I have been wanting to make this project for a long time now and finally I have. It was so easy to make, with all the right tools, and my daughter loved it.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I have, I know my son has because he wants me to make him one also.

One last thing, if you find any misspelled words or incorrect grammar please let me know so that I may make a better instructable for all.

If you like it please give me a "+" Thanks and enjoy!

I have made this at my own, its very easy and assemble so every one could make this at their own. After polish looks very beautiful and I place vertically at wall corner.
But I forget take a picture that one, when I made another then I must take a picture for all of you. Till good bye.

Nice! Now I can't wait to post my wine crate shelf
Mr. Rig It (author)  LinuxH4x0r7 years ago
Thank you. Let me know when you get the wine crate made, then post in my group Home Repair, Refurbishment, and New Projects. If you have any instructables that would fall into this group please feel free to add them.
Mr. Rig It
I will definitely do that if I finish them. Heres a low res preview

Very nice. Have you put a stain or sealer on them yet?
Nope, all I did was peel some stickers and nail them together. BTW, I get them from sam's club, but most places should have them
That looks so nice! Great job, it would be cool standing up too. +1 rating. (Hopefully I can do this in my room.)

Thank you. It was really easy to make. If you don't have an air nailer you could still use a hammer and nails but I would pre-drill the holes first to make it easier.
