Bookshelf Advice Needed

crimsonrae
12 years ago

Hello everyone, I need some advice from wise people :-) I want to build a bookshelf myself, I'm pretty good when it come to building things, being a carpenters' daughter and all, but I;m not sure what kind of wood to use. I have tools at my disposal and would like to use regular untreated wood so I can choose the stain to do myself and save a buck or two. I measured the spot in my room where I want it too be and the dimensions would be as follows;

6'5" tall, 4'5" wide. I want the shelves to be a foot deep and 14 inches high, fitting about 5 shelves into the case.

Any advice on what kind of materials to use of how to start off building it, would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!
