Well with the help of several people in the forum I have figured out how to make a really cool shelving system for my wife. We have a bare wall in our living room that is just screaming for something cool…so using a catalog that I get ideas from I decided I am going to try and build this:
The hard part about this was the ‘free floating shelves’. This is where all the great LJ people come in to really help….using their thoughts and some late night magnifying glasses…I came up with how I think they did this…
I figured that once the shelves are in the notches, I can use keyholes from the back to really secure them to the frame. I havent figured out how to do the mullions yet, but I will. And I havent decided whether Iam gong to try and put a mirror in the panel or leave them open.
I have changed some of the design elements. To try and add some more support to the shelves. So I added a dado along the front to help suport the shelves a little bit more…but not a whole lot as its only about 1/4 inch deep.
-- If you can't build it, code it. If you can't code it, build it. But always ALWAYS take a picture.
