I'd like to build a bookcase using pine (or meranti) planks of dimension 22mm/220mm/3m that my local hardware store stocks. They offer the service of cutting to length, but I have no power tools (well, maybe a drill and countersink bit), so will have to have it all cut beforehand.
What should I consider when designing it, in particular:
- joint type
- stiffening the shelves in the middle
- allowing for unusual dimensions such as wide and low
- I'd prefer something with interesting look
A design I can look at and alter would be the ideal solution
