My wife saw display shelves like this in the Restoration Hardware catalog and wanted them for our loft. The price tag was salty ($800) and the design was pretty simple, so I volunteered to make it myself and add my own design flavor to it.

I used 8/4 quartersawn oak for the shelves and resawed it and bookmatched them to get 12” deep shelves that look like one single board. I was fortunate to find some really beautiful quartersawn oak that has great character. I finished them with a couple coats of poly and drilled the holes for the pipe connectors.

I am guessing the project cost me $200 to $250 and could certainly be done with cheaper wood. If anyone wants more details on the plan design and materials (pipe measurements, etc.), just let me know.

This is obviously a pretty simple project, but I thought it would be worth sharing, since shelving like this is popular these days.
