A Readers Dream Chair: How To Build A Bookshelf Chair

Categories: DIY

Step 6: First floor 

Closeups of completed first level sides

Step 7: Seating area and sides 

I did not take any pictures of adding horizontal seating area piece but it is same size square piece of plywood like the base piece and it was glued down only.

Next I started with upper bookshelf slots with 2 x2 in pines. To secure them I used the same method of Kreg pocket screws and wood glue. The seating area is 28.5″ long and 26″ wide.

Step 8: Bookshelf sides 

Closeup of bookshelf slats and how pocket screws were used to interlock each piece of 2×2 pine to each other.

Step 9: Top and side View

Step 10: Back same as sides

Step 11: Slowly coming together with sides and back

Step 12: Top shelf 

Next I cut out the plywood to fill in support for the all top three sides of the bookshelf chair. As you see, I used clamps to secure it better to the seating area while wood glue dried.

Step 13: Almost done 

Finally, we have pics of completed unpainted bookshelf chair.

Step 14: Lets Paint 

For the color, I had my wife choose the wild color of her choice.

Step 15: Lets wrap it up 

Finally, cushions where a custom made by my mother in law to tie it all up.

Bring on the books and the reading enjoyment.
