I decided to try and build this for my 4 years old son, I really wanted to try building something that had some angles and looked different so I tried this.

To be honest its not my best work as my miter saw and table saw didn’t cut the angles exactly they were 1 to 2 degrees off every time, but that’s a project all on it own.

I used 2×4 stud I had lying around and its basically 6 pieces about 8 3/4” long with a 30 degree bevel on each end, I used biscuit joinery to attach all the pieces with glue and then I reinforced the joint with some little brads.

Building it was one issue hanging it was quite another as I was trying to come up with an idea so as that whatever method I used it had to be minimal as I didn’t want to see that much and thanks to everyone that commented on my forum topic I decided to use these


Overall I am very happy with how the project came out, I will finish the project with a light wood stain and then rehang it.

Thanks for looking

And thanks everyone that helped with my forum topic questions you were all a great help

Beautiful, very funny shelfs. The combinations possibilities here are endles.

Nice shelves! For hanging them, you could try using a keyhole router bit. I got one over Christmas and it makes hanging things like this very simple.
