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.
If you are planning to put some books and display items on it, consider getting a simple do it yourself corner bookshelf. However, if other than books, you are going to place the entire set of encyclopedia and glass ornaments on the book shelves, consider getting a solid wood corner bookshelf
If you are placing it beside another cabinet, make sure that the height of the new corner book shelf is similar to the cabinet. You do not wish to have the cabinet dwarfing the corner bookcase and vice versa.
What will you need? Using plywood and cheap pine for an edging, a drill, jigsaw, and router, you can create a simple, practical, and good looking corner shelf. Look up some woodworking instructions at the library or surf around online. You can stain the plywood great colors, or paint it in just as many shades. Hang beads from the underside. Make the shelves in progressively larger sizes for a great design choice. Homemade corner shelving? No doubt, Mom and Dad will be proud.
