The cost is under $200 for the materials which includes the oak boards, cables and other hardware.

If you own a miter saw, a table saw and a pneumatic nailer, the project will go a lot quicker. However, you can build this project with basic hand tools and a circular saw. Using a router to bevel the shelf edges is optional.

Are the bookshelves strong enough? Yes, they are! Because of the screws, blocks and aircraft-strength cable, you don’t need to worry about the strength. As you read through the instructions, you will see that these shelves are made to last.

These bookshelves are so practical for small rooms and also for people who move frequently since they are so easy to make. We especially like the clean lines that complement most styles of furniture and decor. The bookshelves can be stained or painted to suit your decorating needs.
