Bookcase made of MDF shelves, continues above the door to create height and spaciousness in the living room. The shelves are 32.0 cm high, the top shelves 25.0 cm.

DIY bookcase with MDF

Horizontal planks 30 mm thick, uprights 25 mm thick. The beams are also wider to create depth in the cabinet. After the half-timbered sawing, for stability in the middle, the boards were sealed on the end, sanded and painted and then assembled prefabricated. Pushed against the wall, anchored and painted again. For extra strength put long screws in the horizontal shelves on the sides and a stripe mounting kit.

The dimensions of the project

At the widest part - above the door - 2.76 wide and 2.67 m high. That is wider and higher than the longest size of planks, so ordered extra pieces to achieve the length. Extend the planks by means of dowels.
