Materials and Tools:
1x6 and 1x12 pine lumber
1. Cut the 1x12 back plate to the desired length using a circular saw and a guide. Set the guide in place; rest the saw plate against it, and then make the cut.
2. For the cut detail, draw the desired design onto the board and cut it out using a jigsaw.
3. Cut a 1x6 shelf a couple inches shorter on both ends than the 1x12 to give it some separation from the back plate. Soften the two front corners with a slight curve using a jigsaw. The shelf will be attached to the lower portion of the back plate to provide a background to highlight all the accessories.
Geometric shapes give this easy-to-build bookcase a modern and funky look.
