Bookshelf (WOODEN BOOKSHELF) is a piece of furniture used in storing books. From the foregoing, bookshelf has been considered on important piece of furniture both at home and various organizations. The book shelf has been considered to be majority made of wood that can stand the strength to resist both fatigue and shock. The book shelf is joined and fastened at place where necessary to obtain. The best and exact requirement that suit the users desired choice. The important of book shelf cannot be over emphasized as it uses ranges from simply arranging books to get an organized book for used and easy collection to wide range of presentation for either decoration of workshop, over the time, bookshelf has been considered on important assets that shouldn’t be overlooked on this present dispensation. In this construction and design of this book shelf, it has been designed thus for with economics to take consideration of various factors that might affect the wooden materials such as temperature, sunlight etc; All gearing towards the preservation of the shelf to enhance longevity of the work place.


Design and Construction of a Wooden Bookshelf


1.1 Introduction

Bookshelf is a wooden cabinet use in offices, shops, laboratories and homes etc. for Self storage of files and documents, for show casting of saving items in the shapes (pattern 2008). In first stage of shelve making, the provision to avoid waste of time materials and money which always accompanies dime tiling and repair of the shelve that failed to meet the requirements. this situation can only be avoided by putting down first a laid down on a documented plan such a needs and wants, design decision function, considerations , and working drawing as the case may be.

On the other hand, wood itself according to Oxford Advanced Learners’ Dictionary defined WOOD as the hard material that the trunk and braches of trees are made up of. Wood from deciduous trees are called “HARD WOOD” and those from CONIFER TREES are called “SOFTWOOD”

The physical qualities of wood include: color, grain pattern and surface defects which are mostly seen when the tree is being cut into lumber. The working qualities of wood include dulling effect wood reaction and density which describes the weight (mass) per unit volume of wood

Density = weight (mass of wood) / Volume of wood

Wood is one of the oldest materials known, yet it plays a major role in modern day life. Wood can be said to be the structural part of tree. A living tree basically has the main parts which are the trunk, the roots and the crown which comprises of the branches and the leaves. The roots are embedded in the soil to support the entire tree and also absorb nutrients and water for growth of the tree.

Indeed, the trunk is the most important part for the construction works, paper production, weapons, packaging, artworks etc.

Wood really, is hard fibrous tissue and a natural composite of cellulose fibers (which are strong in tension) embedded in matrix of life, wood is produced as secondary xylem in the stem of trees. In a living tree, it transfers water and nutrients of the leaves and other photosynthetic parts. The wood used for this project were purchased from a local timber market unde3r the strict guidance of my able supervisor, while the proper dimensioning, cutting, fitting, finishing and other works were done in the wood work workshop of my department.

As a prelude to other parts of this study, this chapter will discuss the background upon which this study was initiated, the statement of problems that led to this study, the Aim and Objectives of the study. Others are Significance of the study, Scope of work, Limitation of the study and Definition of technical terms.
