Zigzag Support In Three Steps

Strength: Very good Appearance: Very good Wooden shelf standards have been around in various styles for generations. They are easy to make and add an interesting look to almost any bookcase. The style shown in the top-left photo (I call it zig-zag) is one of the more common forms.

Another style (I call it half-moon) is shown in the lower left photo. To make a pair, you'll need a piece of stock that's at least double the width of each standard. Scribe a lengthwise centerline along the stock, then lay out the shelf spacing by making evenly spaced marks along the centerline. Use a spade bit or a Forstner bit to drill a through-hole at each marked centerpoint. Finally, using a tablesaw, rip the stock down the middle. The net result is a pair of standards, each with a series of half-moon shapes.

Make the cleats just loose enough to slip in and out with ease.
