How To Build A Bookshelf Chair

Ok. Here’s the thing… I have a love hate relationship with the internet. (Especially Pinterest.) I see the most fabulous DIY projects and fall in love with them only to have my hopes dashed to pieces when the instructions are incomplete, are missing completely, or are just downright miserable. Anyone with me? Here is a DIY that Won’t disappoint; it has it all!
The tutorial for this bookshelf chair, featured by Instructables, has detailed steps, pictures, and lists of materials needed. I love this chair and I love that there is a DIY version! Have you seen chairs like this? They are quite spendy when bought but affordable (and fabulous) when made!
Eeeek! Etsy has one that sells for around $3000! Oh my lanta! They are made to order and look amazing but im gonna go with the DIY version. In case you feel like dropping a few thousand dollars follow this link the store.

Hello everyone, my name is Darko and this in my first Instructables.

Task to build bookshelf chair aka ”biblio-chaise” that can hold as many as 18 feet of books.

After seeing this online on houzz.com for $5000, I thought it would be great DIY build for the fraction of the cost.

This is also present to my wife.

Since actual sizes were not available online, I came up with my own by ensuring that the final project would fit through normal door opening. Bookshelf Chair final measurements are 41.5″ wide by 34.5″ long and 29″ tall.

Step 1: ​Materials:
