How to Make Easy Bookshelves With Planks, Concrete Block & Glass

constructionI was checking the referral logs when I saw traffic coming from this eHow article entitled "How to Make Easy Bookshelves With Planks, Concrete Block & Glass".

Bookshelves are an important part of a home's organization. Bookshelves hold books, nick-knacks and even electronics like radios or small televisions. Most bookcases are quite expensive, especially if they are sturdy and well-made. You can create a sturdy and stylish bookshelf using cinder blocks, and glass for very little money. You will need to know how to assemble these materials to create a useful bookshelf.

There are instructions on how to create your own cinder block bookcase, and a link to the reference to the article. That reference? An entry I wrote about the cinder block bookcase I built while at university.

Ya, back in the 60s when I was young, wild and ignorant, (Now I'm only ingnorant.) a few bricks and boards were the coolest thing! Never ventured more than a couple or three feet high. MrFascination has a good point.

When I was in College we built a whole wall unit for the TV, Stereo and books out of beer cases. It was awesome. We won the the award for the best use of everyday items for furniture. It lasted 'till Christmas. We needed to return them for money to buy presents.
