How do I make this bookcase without spending a lot of money? How do I get the shape of the wood partitions?

Hello Markross,

The easiest way to save money on building this bookcase would be by using a less expensive wood. That one appears to be oak so you could go with a poplar or even a pine and it would cost way less for the materials.

As far as the shape of the upright pieces, I agree they are not rectangle but the dark shaded areas are shapes burnt into the wood to make it appear to be a different shape and/or separate pieces of wood. So with that said, look at it again and try to look beyond the burnt areas.

The shape is entirely up to you. I would just make them slightly narrower at the top of each piece and then go for it. It looks like they are all different so nothing you do is incorrect. So just, be creative and make it your own.

I would love to see your project so please post some pictures once you get started and of course the final project.

Let me know if you have any other questions. I would love to help.
