The shelf and the shelf bracket together cost only 20 EUR at IKEA. More problematic was the puffing of paracord rope. This I bought online in a shop, you will get there but also in good outdoor stores. To be able to just make cuts, you should use a manual Saw or better yet a table saw. For the holes, later the paracord cord comes through, you must definitely use a bench drill, because her otherwise no straight holes.

I like it, could see expanding this idea as well – maybe something s-shaped, that covers a larger space? Flat shelf at the top & bottom, with a curved section that connects them?

Very cool idea.

Did you use something as a spacer between each piece of wood?

Pretty cool !

It looks like the front is sagging a bit more than the back. Did you use 2 or 3 lengths of the cord through each piece?
