Introduction: Book Shelf
Here is a shelf made of books. I basically did a combination of this Instructable... https://www.instructables.com/id/60-minute-bookcase/?comments=all#C90X3L0F7DWO3EF
and this one...
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Supplies
I was in a thrift store looking at some older books from the late 60's to late 70's... I saw some old Reader's Digest 3 books in 1 books with some nice colors on the cover. There were also some niceold encyclopedias.
Choose however many books you think you might need(depending on the project). Each book is a side of the shelf. They must be hard back and consider the thickness of the books as well.
You will also need the supplies from the https://www.instructables.com/id/Invisible-Book-Shelf/(hot glue gun, wood scews, "L" brackets, screw driver or drill and a sharp knife.
Step 2: Assembly
- Drilling screws into the books (it worked best for me to go through the cover and then using a dremel to cut off the ends of the screws that protruded)...
- Attaching the "L" brackets...
- Glueing the cover and glueing of the endhsheets ...
Step 3: Mounting...
So once things have dried overnite you are ready to mount and arrange. I will try tp post some close up pictures of the wall mounting hardware I had to use. If you go to Walmart you can find the green ones that look like golf tees. These seem to work great and can hold some weight.
Step 4: Load 'Em Up!
Here's one of my final shelves... I will try to post more pictures later.
