Small Woodworking Projects Like This Wall Shelf are Great to Build With Your Pocket Jig.

Difficulty Rating: Beginner

Types of Pocket Hole Joinery Used: right angle corners.
Power Tools Required:

  • circular saw;
  • jig saw; and
  • drill.
The plans for this pocket hole project call for a bandsaw to cut the two support brackets. If you simplify the shape, these could be cut with a jig saw.

Materials Needed:

This wall shelf is made from cherry. The wood needed to make this project will vary in thickness from 1/2" to 3/4". The width of the boards will vary from 1 1/4" to 6". This pocket hole plan has a total of 7 wood pieces.

Pocket Hole Screws Used:

Because cherry is a hardwood, you would use the fine thread pocket hole screws. You will need eight 1 1/4" Kreg screws, and two 1 1/2" pocket screws.

Our Recommendation:

This wall shelf is a wonderful plan for the beginner Kreg joint woodworker!

Our notes:

The wall hangar design that is built into this wall shelf is more complicated than you would normally see on small woodworking projects. We have seen it used for heavy objects like mirrors and large, framed pictures.

So, if you build this according to the plan, you will have a shelf that could support alot of weight.
