Construction Of Bookshelf In Wooden Form


This project work involves the construction of bookshelf for storing books with wood and nail.

The wood for the construction was seasoned wood that has preservation and without defect. It was first assembled. With finishes for good appearance. In the construction process, both mechanical and manual process was used to produce a suitable bookshelf.

1.0 Introduction

A bookshelf or bookcase is a piece of furniture with horizontal shelves, use to store books. It is clear that as a furniture wood is the Chief construction material use in the construction of bookshelf even though glass is used in some case.

Bookshelf is mainly used for storing books in our homes, school libraries and offices and also used in storing other house hold equipments like compact Disc and plates, catteries and glass plates etc.

In the construction of bookshelf, precautions should be taken both on the materials for construction and when constructing to produce an efficient bookshelf and for long duration of the bookshelf.

1.1 Aim And Objective Of The Study.

The objectives of this project is to expose the student in construction of wooden works. Bookshelf is used in storing books, and also to put down a procedure for the construction of bookshelf.

1.2 Scope Of The Study

The scope of this project is the construction of bookshelf with the use of wood and nail.

1.3 Limitation Of The Study.

The limitation encountered in this project work is as follows:

1. Cost of Materials:

As it stands now in the market, things are very costly as regard to the materials for the construction of the bookshelf. The expected amount has increase leading to addition of money.

2. Time Factor:

Is seen as if the time provided by the authority to write and finish the project was not enough and secondly, this is our first experience and exposure in project writing.

Chapter Five


In conclusion, this project is focused towards boosting the construction of bookshelf and to have suitable bookshelf that can withstand the load to be imposed on it by either book or other equipment or materials.

And also to have a good bookshelf that is accurately dimensioned no matter the material used in the construction and to solve the problem of hipping books on the ground or on an unsuitable environment for the books.


This project construction of bookshelf is to serve the purpose of storing books and other relevant materials and properties. And also to expose students to some other fields of study that is relevant in their environment.

Therefore recommend that this project is good as it exposes students and at the same time reflecting that the study of carpentry, joinery and general wood work should be encouraged in civil engineering.
