A DIY Vertical Wood Shelving Project Idea
So, we’ve got a vertical natural wood shelving system on our list, huh? That sounds fancy. But if you’re not the handiest person around, the idea of making one from scratch might sound a little intimidating. But fear not, my friends, because we’ve got some instructions to make it all easier for you.
- First off, you’re going to need to cut the wood into three vertical pieces the same height as your bedroom ceiling. Easy enough, right? Just make sure you get the dimensions right; otherwise, you might end up with a shelf that’s a little wonky.
- Next up, we’ve got to cut three pieces of 1-1/2 x 96 inches of wood for the front frames.
- And then, seven pieces of wood with a size of 15 x 15 inches as the shelves panel. I don’t know about you, but I’m getting flashbacks to high school shop class.
Once you’ve got all your pieces cut and sanded, it’s time to start assembling.
- Start with the left side, ensuring it has three shelves with four spaces.
- Then, move on to the middle support and shelving system on the right, with four shelves and five areas.
Now, this is the part where it can get a little tricky.
- You’ve got to secure the unit by nailing each joint. And if you’re anything like me, your hand-eye coordination might not be up to par. But just remember, a few extra nails never hurt anyone (except maybe the wood).
- Once the unit is all nailed and secure, it’s time to install the face frame pieces and apply Polyurethane. And just like that, you’ve got yourself a fancy new vertical natural wood shelving system!
- Just ensure you place it close to the wall vertically and secure it to the studs using wall anchors and to the side wall with screws.
And there you have it. You have earned the new experience of making your own bedroom rack shelving system. But if all else fails, there’s always the standing-alone unit.
