Take this Bookshelf Anywhere!Here's a cool knockdown shelf idea for a dorm room or den.You just slide the shelves between the dowels, and they pinch the shelves to stiffen the bookshelf.It works great if you're careful about two things: One, make the space between the dowel holes exactly 1/16 in.
wider than the thickness of the shelf board.And two, be sure the shelf thickness is the same from end to end and side to side.After test-fitting a dowel in a trial hole (you want a tight fit), drill holes in a jig board so the space between the holes is your shelf thickness plus 1/16 in.
Clamp the jig board on the ends of the legs and drill the holes.Cut the dowels 1-3/4 in.longer than the shelf width, then dry-assemble (no glue).Mark the angled ends of the legs parallel to the shelves and cut off the tips to make the legs sit flat.
Disassemble and glue the dowels in the leg holes.When the glue dries, slide the shelves in and load them up.Cutting listPerfectly flat 1x12 lumber or plywood2 shelves: 11-1/4' wide x 3' long4 risers: 2-1/4" wide x 24" long8 dowels: 3/4" dia.
