Built In Corner Bookshelf Tutorial And Building Plans From Remodelaholic

Here is a sketch of the initial thought Cassity had for the built-in corner bookshelves.  I love how she draws on top of a photo for a quick idea of how it could look in the space. Genius!

how to plan for a built-in bookcase from Remodelaholic

 And here is the plan with all the dimensions for our corner bookshelves.

built-in corner bookshelf plans


  • Take this tutorial and modify it to the size that you want. Just make all the adjustments according to your space’s needs.  I would limit the width to 3′ on either side of the “L”.
  • This bookshelf goes floor to ceiling.  The space from the top to the bookshelf opening was reserved for crown molding.  The space from the floor to the bottom shelf was reserved for the base molding.  We personally like tall base moldings and crown.  If you plan on using base moldings or crown, add up the height of the molding, plus the face frame width, for your final face frame height.


Materials Used

  • (3) MDF Sheets – 4’ x 8’ x 5/8”
  • (Approximate 200+)Brad Nails 1”

Tools Used

  • Table Saw (optional)
  • Circular Saw
  • Miter Saw
  • Nail Gun
  • Air Compressor
  • Sanding Block
  • Tape Measure
  • Framing Square
  • Pencil
  • Sander Block
  • Level

Cut Sheet (length x width x thickness)

  • (2) Sides – 96” x 11 3/8” x 5/8′”
  • (10) Side Shelf Brackets – 10 3/4” x 1” x 5/8”
  • (5) Back Shelf Brackets (short side) 35 3/8” x 1” x 5/8”
  • (5) Back Shelf Brackets (long side) 45 3/4” x 1” x 5/8”
  • (1) Top Shelf Support – see diagram below

How to build a corner bookshelf

  • (1) Bottom Shelf – see diagram above
  • (3) Middle Shelves – see diagram above
  • (2) Top & Bottom Face Frames (short side)– 24 5/8” x 9” x 5/8”
  • (2) Top & Bottom Face Frames (long side) – 36” x 9” x 5/8”
  • (2) Side Face Frames – 78” x 2 1/2” x 5/8”
  • (3) Shelf Face frames (short side) – 22 1/8” x 2 1/2” x 5/8”
  • (3) Shelf Face frames (long side) – 33 1/2” x 2 1/2” x 5/8”

Construction Steps


Plans for built-in corner bookshelf Step 1

Note To calculate the dimension of “A”

Add the height of the base molding + the width of the face frame. For our bookshelf we needed to add 6 1/2” (base molding) + 2 1/2” (face frame) = 9”.

step 4 - corner built-in bookshelves

Plans for built-in corner bookshelf Step 5

Note To calculate the dimension of “B”

Measure the opening height from the top of bottom shelf to top of the shelf support (78”). Add up the total face frame widths of the number of shelves within the main opening (3 x 2 1/2”= 7 1/2”.  Subtract that number from the total opening of 78”.  78” – 7 1/2” = 70 1/2” Divide that number by the number of shelf openings (4). 70 1/2” / 4 = 17 5/8”.  Take 17 5/8” and subtract out the thickness of the one of the shelves of 5/8”.   17 5/8” – 5/8” = 17”.  The dimension of B is 17”

The first step of the woodworking project is to build the sides of the frame. As you can easily notice in the plans, we recommend you to use 2×2 and 1×4 lumber. Cut the components at the right size before locking them together. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the horizontal supports and secure them to the legs with galvanized screws. Make sure the corners are right-angled and add waterproof glue to the joints.

Cut a piece of 3/4″ plywood at the dimensions highlighted in the diagrams and secure it to the exterior of the sides. Drill pilot holes through the supports and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the plywood pieces. Add waterproof glue to enhance the joints and leave no gaps between the components.
