Another thing to consider is SPACE since you might not have a lot of it to work with. Given that you’;re going to be buying and reading a lot of books, I put together a super easy DIY bookshelf how-to for a simple, minimalist bookshelf that you can customize to fit your space. Pro tip: if you want another rowpillow sham pattern, repeat the below and stack the shelves. I used red oak which is a little more expensive but if you want to keep all of the materials under $50, go with pine. The height I went with works well for records too!

(this is the size that I went with but you can customize it for your space)

First off, take the shorter boards (13”x11.25”) and measure and mark 2” in from the 13” edges in all four corners.

So you’;re going to want to make pocket holes, which is an angled hole to join your boards together. Grab your wood clamp, spare bit of wood and pocket hole jib. Use the scrap piece of wood to protect the bottom of the board. Clamp the jib to the edge of the board centered over your mark.

Take your power drill and drill into your jib until it can’;t go any further. Keep the drill running as you pull it out. Repeat for every corner.

This is what it should look like!

Place your pocket hole screw in the pilot hole you’ve created with the jib.

Use #2 Square Head Drill Bit to join 13” boards to the short ends of the 48” boards. And that’s it! You can use mineral oil, carnauba wax, or stain on the wood if you’d like or sand it down and leave it raw like I did. Ok now for the fun part…
