Transform An Old Door Into A Leaning Bookshelf in 10 Steps

At Musgroves, we like to show people how to repurpose recycled goods. However, it can sometimes be difficult to make it a reality when you’re not sure where to even start.

As Christina Rossetti puts it, “Can anything be sadder than work left unfinished? Yes, work never begun.” In this blog post, we go through the steps on how to build a leaning bookshelf out of a solid timber panelled door.

This is just one of many possible ways to go with this style of bookshelf, but one of our favourites as it guarantees stability. For the full DIY video, Dema’s Woodshop does an episode where he talks through these steps on his YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOKEn6wrFIg.
