Step 2: Upper Shelving
Sure, you can pick up some knock-together set of shelves, but built-ins provide so much more than just a place to stash your stuff. Made to rise ceiling high, create an alcove for furniture, or wrap an existing nook, they can add style, charm, and architecture to an interior, all while offering custom storage and display space. Here, seven ways to make them special. Bookcases arranged to form a passageway and united with flat trim create a mini library, complete with a rolling ladder that beckons young readers to hunt for a good book on the topmost shelves. Designer Bret Franks came up with the idea as a way to add old-house character to a new farmhouse with a completely open first floor beyond this office space.
To make a built in bookcase and cabinet can be a great addition to any space. It's awesome to build something like this yourself, because it enables you to customize something specifically for your space, and to really utilize every nook and cranny, and height! In this Instructable I'm going to go over building the top shelving and the base cabinet frame for the unit I'm building for my office. It's a pretty big piece of furniture measuring 5 x 8 feet in total and it includes drawers underneath, a counter in the middle and shelving above. Even though everybody's built-in units will be of different sizes, you can use the same principles and techniques that I used to plan your space and build something custom.
I built my first bookcase in middle school. A multitiered assemblage of wooden planks laid across stacks of bricks, it was reminiscent of pieces from the early Flintstone Period--and I was proud to have made it myself. Since that masterpiece, I've built 50 or 60 more, most while working as a cabinetmaker for an interior design firm, where I learned the carpentry skills, design guidelines and construction techniques used in the bookcase shown here. Basically consisting of three plywood boxes fitted with a hardwood face frame, this piece looks built-in because it spans from wall to wall, and is trimmed with molding at the ceiling and floor. With moderate skills and some patience, it wouldn't be hard to make this project fit any space.
