It’s a fact that as parents we would all like our kids to read a little more.  I think we can all agree that our kids spend way too much time in front of the TV or on the computer playing video games and this project will help you to do just that by creating something that your kids will love and you can fill it with lots of interesting books once completed.

Why not get your kids involved in this project?  Remember to always follow safety advice, such as wearing protective eye wear and ensure following the operating guidelines of any power tools you will be using.

In this project you will find a series of 4 videos, starting with this one, Part 1, which covers the building of the carcass of the bookcase up to Part 4 which deals with the Castle Top and Finishing.  Work through each of the videos and you will find that you will have a fantastic Castle Bookcase to enjoy for years to come.
