Bookshelf With Trellis Back

With two very avid little readers in our home, we always seem to be bursting at the seams with books. We keep trying to find ways to store and display them.

When they were little, I used front-facing bookshelves so they could easily see the book covers. Now, we just need a shelf that can be filled with rows of books.

Bookshelf With Trellis Back

Step 1 – Prepare the Board

Make all the cuts per the plans and sand all the boards smooth.

Step 2 – Build the Side

Use a stud finder to locate and mark the studs in the walls. 

Step 3 – Add the Shelve

Attach the long supports and the shelves to the side. The long supports are attached using 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws. 

Step 4 – Complete the Shelf

Attach the other leg frame by attaching the long aprons with pocket hole screws and nailing the edges of the plywood shelf to the aprons.
