2) Drill

3) Pencil

4) Square

5) Wood glue

6) Corner Clamps

7) Brad Nailer

8) Kreg Jig

9) Kreg Jig nails

10) Sander

WOOD BUY LIST

(4) 1X3X6

(8) 1X2X6

(2) 1/4 inch plywood 4ft x 8ft

(Optional Trim for front edges)


CUT LIST

(4) 1X3X5 @ 45 DEGREE BEVEL CUT

(2) 1X3X24" @ 45 DEGREE BEVEL CUT

(10) 1X2X34"

(10) 1X2X12"

(5) 1/4" plywood x16"x35"





When cutting your plywood, use your Jig saw to cut out the edges .

Front of bookshelf 2" x 1"

Back of bookshelf 2 1/2" x 1"


Using your Kreg Jig, attach the 1x2x12" to the Bevel cut 1x3's. Be sure your bevel cuts are angled outwards as seen in the drawing above.This will be your side posts. Then using your KregJig attach the 1x2x34"in line with the other 1x2's. For the front of my bookshelf I wanted a 1 inch space to allow for my trim. This is optional. Once you have the frame of your bookshelf built place all the cut plywood sheets into the shelves. Use your brad nailer to hold it all together. Using a corner clamp, glue and a brad nailer put together the top arch. Please refer to my YouTube video to see all the steps in action.
