Built in shelves in not so square spaces.

These shelves are made from old reclaimed oak boards. They had to be mounted invisible in recessed space. The only problem is that those spaces were not square and straight at all. I have used a simple adjustable template to get a tight fit. The walls are made from plastered gypsum blocks. I am curious what these blocks are called in English by the way. And I just drove screws in it. I think it came out really nice.

I have made a short video about the built and install and put it on YouTube. I hope you wull check it out and like it. It can be found here:

Toen ik dit plaatje bekeek was de eerste reactie: “Dit is europees”, en inderdaad ook nog redelijk dichtbij. Mooie kastenwand. Of wel

Well done.

Haha, keurig hoor. Je ziet het er wel aan af inderdaad. Toffe dingen maak je trouwens. Die modellen zijn echt te gek. Kom je uit de buurt?

...sorry guys, pretty hard language.
