These are some of the tools that we're going to need to make our bookcase. We're going to need a belt sander. We're going to need a random orbit sander. We're going to need a drill with a countersink and screw assembly, I'll talk about that in a minute. We're going to need a framing square and a pencil, router with a half inch round over, two and a half inch course thread. You can use drywall screws but they have to be course thread. You can't use the ones with the little skinny threads because they don't grab. We're going to need some wood filler and you want to get the kind that's tan like this. You don't want to get the kind that's white because that's going to make big white dots, when we're done with it and we're also going to need some plugs. These are 3/8's, birch plugs. You can buy a bag of them at the home store and you're going to need a tape measure and of course as we mentioned before you'll have to have a table saw or know somebody that's got a table saw or buy a table saw. That's basically the tools that we're going to need to make our bookcase.
