FREE PLAN: Bookcase/Bureau

6 September 2017 by

Feeling a bit handy? These free plans will help you assemble your own bookcase and bureau set with just basic resources and tools. The bookcase is 36 inches high, 24 inches wide and ten inches deep, with two shelves for books and a top bureau shelf for writing and storage. No more faffing about with IKEA instructions - build your own furniture your own way.

While Hobbies unfortunately no longer supplies specific kits with the materials to build one of these bookcases, we do sell brassware, screws and hinges ideal for this sort of project. You’ll also need a couple of large sheets of hardwood, preferably cedar, maple, alder or even teak and mahogany. Hobbies can provide these, although for larger sheets you may want to visit a local hardware store or builder’s shop. Make sure all the screws are properly tightened and secured, and this bureau will help you keep your house tidy for years to come.
