A console table that holds books, what a great idea! I’ve been noticing a lot of these v-shaped book shelves lately and I really like the idea. Jamie decided that we needed one for the guest room, and well, you know how the rest of the story goes. I laid it out in CAD and got to work. The cool part about this table is it is super simple to build and I was able to do it for under $75! Enjoy the plans below!

    How was this finished? Love the white wash looking finish

    • Thanks, I first stained it with Rust-Oleum’s worn navy stain, then made a white wash with Rust-Oleum linen white chalk paint and water, and put on using a stain rag.

    Hello! This book rack is just what I have been looking for! I would love to put this in my kitchen to hold my cookbooks, but I was wondering if this book rack would be deep enough to hold them. In your picture, you have smaller books — do you think this book rack could accommodate larger books? My largest cookbook is about 8 1/2″ x 11″. If not, would it be pretty easy to modify these plans — maybe use 1x10s instead of 1x8s? Thanks for any help you can offer!

    • Tammie it will definitely hold larger books. We have large books in there now and it works perfectly.

    Great design. I am going to build this over the Christmas break. Can you tell me what the height of the triangular pieces should be? I see the widths at 5-1/4 and 5-5/8 but no height.

    • Thanks Matthew and good luck. Those triangular pieces are cut at 45 degrees so the height is the same as the widths. Sorry I forgot to include that.
