Built in bookcases offer the opportunity to combine highly functional storage with a unique and personal design statement. Very popular during the early 's American Craftsman era of design, built in shelves are enjoying a resurgence in popularity among homeowners across the United States. Today's built in bookshelves encompass many more design styles than just Craftsman, reflecting the tastes of the individual homeowner and the make-up of the home. Bookcases that span the entire range of styles from traditional, transitional, modern or contemporary are currently being added to many Chicagoland homes. Bookshelves are one category of the more generic term "wall unit," meaning they are a storage unit that is usually constructed against a wall. Built in bookshelves are always physically attached to a wall or other permanent feature of the home. This is what makes them "built in" rather than a piece of freestanding furniture.

Create A DIY Sliding Door Bookshelf

Not every project I build comes out perfectly. Of course, I mean something that no one else would notice, though some of you might. Each time I build one, I learn something new. After all, hidden bookcase doors are a lot more complicated than an ordinary door—there are a lot of variables, both in design and construction, especially on openings that have to swing out. If you notice any others, please let me know. And they always need some adjustment down the road.


So you must have had floor joists positioned perfectly on center beneath and above your bookcase, right at the pivot points. All the pivot point measurements are taken off the jamb. I am curious why the pivot system you chose is better than a lazy Biult bearing joint that is rated for pounds? Adjust the blade height and fence setting to get the bevel right.

Sue Ames, Iowa. The Scandinavian simplicity of the Shelving system is especially well suited for installations of nice interior details and art objects. Again, thank you Gary. Then I took bolts and snugly fit them into the holes and added nuts.
