In an effort to inspire his children to spend more time reading, one Instructables user created an adorable miniature bookshelf.
Step 1: Collect Materials
Before beginning the project, you will need:
- 1 Large sheet of 3/4″ plywood (8’x 42″)
- 10 dowel rods cut to be (1/2″ x 13.5″ )
- Fabric (any color)
- Wood glue
- Wood putty
- Sand paper
- 8 wood screws 2″
- Optional: Fabric dye if you want to do tie dye.
Step 2: Shelves and Arches
Develop and measure the pieces you arch and shelves, and then slice them out of the wood with a jigsaw.
Step 3: Drill holes for the shelves
Add ½ inch holes in the spaces where you will insert the dowel rods.
Step 4: Fabric Shelves
Grab your fabric, cut where necessary and apply a series of loops and gaps that align with the dowel rods. Make one and check your work before continuing with the rest.
Step 5: Assembly
For the last step, the platform must be screwed and glued into the base of the arch.
