Are you one of those who love to studying books? If yes then you surely have a bookshelf in your room where you can keep all your books. In case if you don`t have one then you can make a DIY bookshelf easily on your own. First of all you need to collect the required material that you wanted to use for bookshelves. Other than this you also need to decide about the location where you want the shelf and finishing that need to be applied. There are many ideas available from which you can choose the one that fulfill your requirements. When you are going to the project on your own, then it is good if you work with pine wood as it is one of the easiest materials to work with. You can cut and drill it easily. On the other hand oak is a hardwood which requires more professional techniques to work on.
When you have decided about the place where you want your DIY bookshelf, then you need to find the center lines on your wall. You can do this with the help of stud finder tool. Sometimes you can also do this by tapping a hammer gently on the wall, but this is not truly accurate all the times.
One thing that you need to be careful is that don`t start measurement from the floor, because sometimes the floor is not properly level and so do your bookshelf. A corner shelf is easy to build because it has the support from two walls which can provide it perfect strength and great look. So if you are planning to make a DIY bookshelf, then just go for a corner bookshelf, it will give a perfect nice look to your room.
