I got the idea for this out of a catalog that sold something similar but it had a metal backbone, was smaller and they wanted $175 for it. I made this for let than $20 out of a single piece of mahogany and used walnut stain. Mounted to a stud this thing will support my weight (6’1”; 240). If you load books on every shelf it gives the impression they are simply floating on the wall. I envisioned several of these but ideas change. Simple construction and very effective.
You can alter the design all you like as you can see I added two small platforms for wife’s nick nacks and candles.
