One & Two Sheet Bookcases

Build a beautiful bookcase without breaking the bank! This seemingly simple bookcase is built using limited tools and limited materials. Our detailed plan¬†gives you everything you need to create either a sleek and modern One-Sheet Bookcase (60″ Tall x 9 3/4″ Deep x 30 1/4″ Wide) or a more traditional Two-Sheet Bookcase (60 3/4″ Tall x 11 3/4″ Deep x 33 1/2″ Wide). The three-hour video series specifically covers the more complex Two-Sheet Bookcase, since the same tools and techniques are employed to create the simpler One-Sheet version.

Instructor: Marc Spagnuolo

The project includes:

  • 9 step by step lessons
  • 190 minutes of video instruction

$70.00

What You’ll Receive:

  • Detailed cut list and plans including a PDF and a SketchUp file for both¬†versions of the bookcase.
  • Over three hours of detailed video instruction showing every step of the build, from wood selection to finishing. Closed Captioning available.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Breaking down plywood with a circular saw
  • How to make a circular saw track
  • Making dados and rabbets with a router
  • Assembling casework
  • Face frame assembly
  • Working with molding and edging
  • Pre-finishing with gel stain

What you’ll need:

  • Circular Saw
  • Drill
  • Router (with rabbeting bit and a small Ogee profile bit)
  • Miter Saw (you can substitute with a traditional hand saw and miter box)
  • I also used a brad nailer, but that’s optional.
  • Plywood and trim that can be sourced from any home center
