Instructions

Read through the entire set of instructions and all comments before beginning this project. If you print out or save our plans, be sure to check back before starting your build, to be sure you have the most up to date set of plans. Use glue to secure your joints and Consider Painting or Staining individual sections prior to assembling. This makes the paint application virtually flawless. Coat with a spray on Poly or Wipe on Poly to protect your finish and your piece and it will last for ages. Adhere to all safety standards and guidelines, and be sure you follow safety protocol throughout your build. If you are unsure about whether you are building safely, run a quick online search for the tool or technique you are using.

Step 1

Cut the pieces for the legs and the sides. Set the Kreg jig for ¾” material and drill pocket holes in each end of the side pieces. Attach to the legs as shown using glue and 2” pocket hole screws. The back side of the side pieces should be flush with the inside face of the legs.

Cut the pieces for the side panels. Drill pocket holes as shown and attach to the leg frames with glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

Step 2

Cut the pieces for the back aprons and the back leg. Drill pocket holes in each end of the aprons and attach to the legs as shown using glue and 2” pocket hole screws. The outside face of the aprons should be flush with the outside face of the legs.

Cut the pieces for the front aprons. Note that one side of the aprons is shorter than the other. This allows the shorter side to attach to the longer side and create the “L” shape. Drill pocket holes in both ends of the shorter pieces and one end only of the longer pieces. Attach as shown using glue and 2” pocket hole screws where the aprons attach to the legs. 1-1/4” pocket hole screws will be used where the aprons attach to each other.

Step 3

Cut the pieces for the shelves. Drill pocket holes as shown and attach to the side panels with glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws. The lower shelf can be secured to the lower aprons with 1-1/4” brad nails through the top of the shelf into the aprons.

Step 4

Cut the pieces for the back. Secure to the back of the bookshelf and upper shelf with glue and 1-1/4” brad nails.

Step 5

Cut the piece for the top. Attach the top to the shelf with glue and 1-1/4” brad nails through the top into the legs and aprons. The top will overlap by ½” on the sides and front.

Finishing Instructions

Fill any Screw, Nail or Pocket Holes, Sand and Finish as Desired.
