After years of the Mrs. asking for shelves in our family room, this is what I designed and built one Saturday. Ok, so installation was the second day. But a true one weekend project.

The varying depths give them a pleasant feel.

Baltic birch plywood, box joint corners, wipe on ploy.

Thanks for looking,

I love this. I like the overall collage look that you have created. Lovely art filled with art :)

It’s similar to an idea I’ve been forming in my mind over the past couple weeks….

Nice artsy feel to the whole thing. The objects on the shelves tells me someones into art. The shelves make it all stand out very nicely. mike

You’ve blown me away just by getting them all on the wall in tasteful fashion.
