Making a corner bookshelf for your study can be a simple one level shelf or a set of shelves with an enclosure. Your first items to do are to pick the material you wish to use for the shelves, select the finishes you will apply and the location where you want the shelves. There are just tons of pre-made shelving kits available today. Corners, straight, pre-edged, scroll work bracket supports and so on. If you choose to do your own here are some helpful hints. Pine wood is the easiest to work with as it is a soft wood.and cuts, drills and sands quite easily. Oak is a hardwood that requires some more special techniques. Both make fine shelves but the final finish you can achieve may determine what species of wood you choose. Once you determine the location of your new shelf you need to locate the center lines of the wall studs. A stud finder tool can make quick work of finding the studs. Gentle tapping on the wall with hammer can sometimes be useful but is not really accurate. Mark the stud centers for nailing purposes later on. A corner shelf is one the easiest shelves to mount as by it's very nature, it has supports on two adjoining walls. Using a carpenters level mark on the wall two lines at the height you want the finished shelf.
In an office, you'll be able to store all your past and current project files, client information and administration data in an effective manner by using corner bookcase units. If your office happens to have a relatively high ceiling, you can take advantage of the vertical space by getting taller corner units. The only downside is the inconvenience of accessing the top shelves. This of course can easily be solved by using a small, portable and easy to store step stool.
Taking measurements is such an important step that you should probably do it twice. You don't want to go to all the trouble of shopping for and buying a wood corner bookcase, only to bring it home and find that it doesn't fit in its designated spot. Determine the height that you're looking for. For certain rooms, a wood corner bookcase that is the same height as your couches or coffee tables provides the right amount of visual symmetry, while other rooms will call for a taller bookcase. Depending on the amount of floor space available to you, you'll need to choose between a free-standing corner book case and a wall-mounted one.
