DIY book stand – a beginner woodworking project – BUILD FROM SKETCH

Follow me on Instagram:

Hi there!
Today I’d like to show you how to build this awesome bookstand from a piece of solid apple wood.
I build this for cookbooks and recipe books for my mother.
I want to show you that you don’t need the super fancy workshop that is stuffed with multi thousand dollar tools and machines to build something that has a high quality, accuracy and style.
EVERY step shown in this video could be done by hand. Sawing, planing, drilling or screwing. I used the machines that I had on hand, but you don’t need a single one of them.

The total measurement of this bookstand is 200 x 300mm.

If you like this project please let me know in the comments and give me a thumbs up, that helps me a lot! 🙂

  1. Hello A.
    I enjoyed your video very much! When I started back to University I had made a book stand mainly for paper note books and to hold my clip board for my draft papers, I like to reuse as well and was made from my recycle pile. I do believe yours is much more suitable, that it folds down and is easily put away which saves on desk space. I was looking to build something different for my daughter for she asked me to make her one. Her tastes are more modern in design where mine are rustic. I do believe that your design is more superior for her taste and decor. Thank you very much!!
