Well, this is my first post on lumberjocks. In fact, its the first time I ever showed anyone outside my immediate family and a few friends at work any woodworking project. So I’m pretty nervous. Anyway, my wife said my son Dylan needed a bookshelf. When I asked him what type of bookshelf he wanted, he replied bullbowber bookbelf. I assumed he said bulldozer. Based on his reaction, I think I got the translation correct.
Its made from 1X12 pine from home depot, hardboard, peg board, a couple of old matching flashlights and a heat register. Unfortunately I didn’t spend the time to get the lights to work. The hydraulic cylinders are an old banister to my basement stairs and the shelf paper (which I think makes the whole project) was found on ebay. Let me tell you if you ever want an industrial look, that diamond plate shelf paper is a very inexpensive way to go.
Hope you enjoy the project!
