Reading and woodworking are both pleasant, relaxing pastimes. Though most people don't associate the two, there is a way to link them together. Use your woodworking skills to build a set of bookshelves to house your favorite books. Lowe's is happy to provide this information as a service to you.
Take the time to double-check all measurements. Remember to measure twice so you only have to cut once.
Lay out the pieces as you would to assemble them. Choose the sides of the boards that will face out from the bookshelf. Use a pencil to lightly mark the interior faces. The "A" or faced side of the plywood should be visible from the front of the bookshelf.
Depending on the smoothness of the lumber, you may be able to start with fine sandpaper. Use your best judgement to determine what to start with.
Dry fit the pieces to make sure they fit properly. Make any adjustments necessary before beginning final assembly. Keep the pieces oriented correctly during assembly. When gluing, use just enough glue to bond the pieces. Squeeze outcauses stain to blotch and ruins your finish.
Good idea: Allow the finish to cure for at least seven days before putting books on the shelves.
