Make Yourself A Solid Wood Bookcase

Top Solid Wood Bookcase

Solid Wood Bookcase – The first thing we need to know the measures. In this case I used boards 210x50x3 beech wood columns and 16x16x50. But it can be filled with wood and measures to adapt your tastes! Once cut wood all you have to prepare before starting work.

It only takes sand the edges of the boards and column to remove hostiles. After sanding we get down to work with varnished. I used an oil-based varnish. We started by columns, so if you do it at home you may have a place to support the boards. Give 2 coats of varnish to achieve the necessary brightness and softness of solid wood bookcase.

Once all the columns let the varnish dry for about an hour. Now we can start to varnish the boards. Varnished on one side and all the sides, and let them dry approximately another hour. The we turn around and repeat the coating operation. Do not forget 2 coats of varnish on the tabletops well. Once this all varnished and dry proceed to assembly. The idea is to make solid wood bookcase appear that the columns or supports are one body through the wooden planks, so do yourself a template or a square, to square brackets in the same place at all levels.
