This airplane shelf is made of recycle timber, pine palate. No plan was provided and it was all in my head only. It is suitable for boy’s bedroom to display his favorite toys or just to show the plane itself in a flaying position like in photo 2. It is 90 cm wide and I’m planing to make a huge one soon. Photo 6, how it was.
