We have two amazing used bookstores in town. When my grandkids come to town, we have to visit the bookstores multiple times.
During their six-week visit this summer, all the grandkids accumulated so many books! All three of them love to read so I can't say 'no' to more books.
The middle grand had run out of room for books in his room so he asked if we could make him bookshelves.
So plans were made, lumber was bought and bookshelves took shape! It was fun to work with him on this project.
This is a perfect beginner project.
With the exception of cutting the wood and sanding, my grandson was involved in all aspects of this build. His favorite part was painting, but he did enjoying getting to use the drill and the Dremel rotary tool too.
One of the best "tools" we have in the garage are our Husky adjustable tables. Because we could adjust the table down to his level, he was able to safely use the various power tools and work without having to stand on his tippy toes!
Next year: power saw training!
We will be looking forward to seeing these in his room on our next visit to his home.

We are not professionals, and we don't claim to be. This is what we found worked for our project. Yours may need a little different approach. Safety first!
