Adjusting Leg On Corner Shelves

This is something that I normally add to corner units. As most walls and corners are not level. This allows for the unit to be tilted back or forward to get a better fit.

This unit is made from recycled Yellow Narra legs and Red Narra shelves. The Red Narra is very difficult to source in planks now. It is 1.8 mts by 0.6 mts at the bottom.

nice looking shelf. The adjustment on the back leg is a good idea.

The tilting idea is great!
For a four legged case two such adjusters would perform the same function.
Thanks for the idea.

George,

As always, best use of material, nice lines in the piece, great problem solving! When wood is hard to come buy, how do you locate and purchase it?

HI DocSavage45

Here in the Philippines it is always about networks. You need to get to know as meany people as you can and they will then tell you first when they have some wood.
