WOOD magazine review

Take a bookcase shortcut

Review Summary

When my son went off to college, he needed basic shelving that transports easily. Rockler’s I-Semble Shelf Blocks made it super simple to build a bookcase, TV stand, or utility shelf. I needed only a drill and screwdriver to attach these black-painted, metal brackets to wood panels using the included screws.
(You can buy precut, prefinished shelves from a home center, or make your own.) The I-Semble shelving I made is no substitute for fine furniture, but in minutes I had put together a modern-looking, sturdy unit that disassembles quickly when it’s time to move again. —Tested by Dave Campbell, Editorial Content Chief
