DIY: Make a Bookcase Tower
Do it yourself / /
There is no enough space for bookshelves if you live in a smaller home, so therefore we present you this elegant and very practical solution for this problem- a vertical book shelf for you to place all of your favorite books.
For this you will need MDF of 16mm and a board that will serve as a vertical holder, so that you can dye the policy in the desired color.
The material needed:
All sections 16mm PG Bison SupaWood unless otherwise specified
1 of 44 x 44mm x 1.8 metres PAR pine - cut to 1744mm length
1 of 300 x 400mm - bottom support
1 of 290 x 360mm - top support
7 of 200 x 300mm - shelves
8 of 140 x 200mm - upright dividers
2 of 4 x 55mm cut screws
4 x 50mm cut screws
How to do vertical bookshelf
To begin first assemble 2 parts of base shelves. With the saw, cut off 2 square with dimensions 44x44mm on the back of the base which comes at a place where vertical beams are. Drill holes in the beams with drill of 4mm and with a help of wood glue and screws of 4x55mm, attach the patch in place.
Once you have the base supports in place, you can start adding the upright dividers and shelves. Starting at the bottom, drill 3mm pilot holes through the upright and at a depth of 6mm into the upright divider. Secure the upright divider to the upright with 4 x 50mm cut screws.
Leave a space of 16mm and place the following vertical partition in the same way. Use the bookshelf as a measure of the empty space between the two partitions.
Place the shelves in openings of 16mm making sure that they are aligned before you drill holes from 3mm through the bulkhead and into the shelf. Secure the screws of 4x50mm.
Sand the rough all the parts until they become smooth. To reduce the absorption of paint at the edges, after sanding them, you can coat them with wood glue.
Repaint the shelf with 2-3 coats of acrylic paint or spray.
