3 Simple Tips That Make Following Shelf Woodworking Plans Easy At first glance, shelf woodworking plans seem like they can be very easy to follow, but once you get into it theres a lot of little techniques that can get you into trouble if you dont know what youre doing. I get plenty of questions about cutting the dados and the grooves for shelving and bookcase type projects, especially from beginner woodworkers I know. Seeing that my fellow woodworking enthusiasts are having some trouble following shelf woodworking plans in particular, here are my 3 simple tips that make following them easy: Simple Tips That Make Following Shelf Woodworking Plans Easy #1: Using The Right Tools Typically, when you buy woodworking tools these days, you dont get to speak to someone who actually knows something about the craft of woodworking. So, you wont be able to ask them specific questions like about the tools so that you can get the best tools for what youre doing. For example, I popped into the local Home Depot the other day wanting to find out which tool was best for me to cut a particular joint. It was frustrating, I can tell you that. Thankfully, I managed to find out from one of my shelf woodworking plans what the right tool was that I needed eventually: it was a table saw with a dado blade setup. Simple Tips That Make Following Shelf Woodworking Plans Easy #2: Using The Right Support Another common difficulty is with regards to the best router table to use. Now, most shelves are quite long when youre working on them horizontally, normally about 72 inches lengthwise. Compare that to your typical router table thats only about 30-35 inches long, and youve got a problem! I used to have a lot of trouble with this when I was trying to follow these plans, but once I started using a bench stand it solved the problem for me easily. And I didnt have to go out and spend a lot of money on roller stands, which was an added bonus. Simple Tips That Make Following Shelf Woodworking Plans Easy #3: A Good Plan! Well, this is a bit obvious but Ill say it anyway, if the shelf plans youre using arent up to scratch, youre going to have a lot of problems. Now, Im all for saving money, but when I hear about folks using free plans Im not surprised when they start running into a lot of trouble. Whenever I encounter problems in my shelving projects, I always flip back to my premium plans and find the solution from there. The shelf woodworking plans I use arent just any old plans, theyre from Teds Woodworking! If you havent heard of them, theyre one of the best shelf woodworking plans around. Every plan comes complete with a full list of materials and tools required for the project, plus detailed step-by-step instructions and fully measured diagrams that make everything easy peasy.
Corner Shelf - Store Things Easily A corner shelf is usually triangular shaped so it can easily fit into the corner of the room without taking up much floor space. It is an excellent option for a smaller than average space. They are used in all kinds of applications in all kinds of rooms, and is often used to display collections or to display decorative figurines. There are plenty of options for a corner shelf. One may have a glass door on the front or may include some storage under the shelving area that is tucked behind a door. One of these shelves can be made entirely from wood, with wood shelves, or it can be made from wood with glass inserts as shelves. Another favorite material is metal. One can be very tall and narrow or it can be short and not so narrow. There are plans that are available for building one of these shelves in your home. This will take about a weekend to complete. The first step in building a corner shelf is to find plans and figure out dimensions. The next step will be to secure the materials that will be used to build. There will definitely be a need for some tools. A screwdriver, a saw, a hammer and safety goggles. Power tools can be used to save some time and frustration but are not necessary. Building your own shelf can be a very rewarding experience. Also an added bonus of building leaves open a lot of customization features that can be added. Of course saving money is always a plus. If the time or the desire will not permit building, one can be purchased. One can be purchased through any store that sells furniture. The cost will vary and will not be as cheap as building a corner shelf but usually they are very affordable. A shelf without too many bells and whistles probably can be purchased for around one hundred dollars. A more elaborate shelf can certainly run well above five hundred dollars.
