10/31 | Knock Off Urban Outfitter DIY Wooden Circle Shelf

I have recently been obsessed with anything and evverything from Urban Outfitters. Their style is so unique while also minimalistic at times. One of the things that I fell in love with on their website was this Circle Shelf. It spoke right to my heart with it’s exposed natural wood and cool design. I wanted it so bad, but not quite bad enough to fork over  $40. Instead I decided to work on my carpentry skills and make my own. Little did I know how easy it would be at this point. I only spent $9 at Home Depot and like 1 hour making the DIY Wooden Circle Shelf. Here is how I did it because you are gonna want to make one for your room/apartment/home too! 

So as I was walking around Home Depot looking for a piece of wood to cut into the shape of a circle with my jigsaw, I came upon the motherload! Precut and sanded woden circles! They were big and only $6 each!

If that wasn’t great enough, I explained what I was trying to make and one of the employees offered to cut one of my circles in half for me using their big saw.

I was so grateful! I went home with everything I needed to make myself already cut. My only job was to assemble now.

You will need:

  • 2 wooden circles (1 cut in half at Home Depot) OR 3 if you want to make 2 shelves
  • Wood Glue
  • Drill
  • 3 Skrews
  • Ruler
  • Pencil

Step One: Measure and find the exact center of the full circle. Then draw a line down the middle. Mark 3 equally spaced dots along that line. 
Step Two: Using the drill to drill a hole all the way through at each mark.

Step Three: Mark and drill holes at the same spots on the cut edge of the half circle. Drill the holes to be at least 1 inch deep.

Step Four: Add a line of wood glue along the middle line that you drew on the full circle.

Step Five: Then from the other side of the full circle, dill screws through the predrilled holes.  Drill them in about half way or just until the pop out a little on the other side.

Step Six: Linning the holes up with the screws, place the half circle perpendicular to the full circle. Then tighten the screws. 
That’s it! All there is to it. I could not love my Urban Outfitters Inspired DIY Wooden Circle Shelf! I just love switching up the little decorations that I have on it. Looking at it hanging on my wall just brings me so much joy in the mundaneness of life.
