My mother-in-law love the one I made for my son so she said hey will you make me one as well

It’s basically the same construction as my original project using 2×4 and using biscuit joints and glue to secure the joint

This is a super cheap project but it is challenging if your saws and you’re cutting equipment or not true to the angles at which you need to cut them

I did rearrange the hexagons to form a different pattern so is that it would suit her room

Thank you so much for looking give it a try you might like the project

To secure the individual hexagon I countersunk three holes to the adjacent side of the mating peace and buried them with wood plugs

What’s really cool is that you don’t necessarily have to make an entire unit you can make individual hexagons and stagger them up the stairwell or star got them in different locations around the home

Thanks so much for looking

This is some nicely designed accent shelving and I love the way it looks. It’s nicely done.
