Easy Build - Nice Finish Book Shelf

Introduction: Easy Build - Nice Finish Book Shelf

I built this bookshelf in my spare time, and it didn't cost much, or take a long time. The wood working was quite simple (I just followed the plans.) I made it out of oak, and finished it with golden oak stain. I picked out some tiles by Totem ($20-$30) and placed them on the top, flush with the trim. I chose a design that I liked, but you can have any arrangement of tiles you want. Once the tiles were glued in, I grouted between them, and once the grout was dried, I wiped it down and I was finished. It was fairly simple to make, quite cheap cost wise, didn't take much time, and looks nice.

    Looks great. More details of plans and process would be helpful.

    Thanks! Please vote! I made the book case a while back, so I don't have the plans on hand. I'll try find them and add them. If I remember, you could adjust the plan for different finishes, like tile, laminate, wood, etc.
