Building Bookcases

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 11.00.57 AM.png

I love books (I guess that’s kind of obvious, given my chosen profession). But beyond just loving books, I love the lifestyle that goes hand in hand with being a bibliophile: books in every room; books doubling as home decor; books stacked up the stairs; books propping up antique furniture that you’ve been meaning to fix… (Well maybe those last two are more an indication of a problem—one that any self-respecting bibliophile would seek to solve with an exploratory trip to the bookstore).

The latest book I edited is for bibliophiles in need of help (and who are also a bit handy). You know who you are. “How to Build Bookcases & Bookshelves” compiles 15 book storage and display projects from the pages of Popular Woodworking Magazine and American Woodworker. From a few simple but sturdy bookcases to more elaborate bookcases based on popular furniture styles to built-in shelves, you’ll find a wide array of ideas for adding bookshelving to your personal library.

It’s a great book to add to your bookshelf—after you use it to build one, of course.
