Open a Little Library at your Home Photos by Rob Brown; Illustration by Len Churchill INFO: DIFFICULTY - 2/5, LENGTH/TIME - 3/5, COST - 2/5I wasn't really looking for an idea for a weekend project, but just couldn't pass up the opportunity when I saw a small wooden box with a glass door in it, on a post, on someone's front lawn, in a Toronto neighborhood.
While driving home, I went through a mental inventory of what I had in the way of materials in the garage that I could turn into a 'Little Library' for my own neighbourhood.At home I measured a few books and decided to make one with a double shelf.
I made a quick sketch, turned it into a plan and started building.Cedar stands up to the elements very well.I chose to use pine, as that is what I had on hand, but feel free to use whatever you think works best for your situation.
A few coats of paint go a long way to protecting whatever wood you end up using.The main structureI started by rough-cutting to length the sides, back, bottom and roof sections.I then cut them to width on the table saw.
