Built-in Bookcase Plans

Using basic tools and materials, a novice woodworker can build custom bookcases that range from simple, open back shelves that mount on a wall to a room divider that provides free-standing storage.

Free plans for built-in bookcases are easy to adapt to any size space, from a simple shelving unit around a doorway to an entire library wall, including door units.


Choose heavy-duty MDF and paint for sturdy, colorful shelving or beautiful hardwoods and finishes for an elegant touch.

Construct built-in bookcases to add a finished look to a room, while increasing storage and display areas without taking up valuable floor space. Every house can use additional storage and a built-in bookcase can be a simple project for any homeowner. Window seats and door surrounds are popular choices, with plans to fit any style and budget.
