My son needed more shelves in his room, so I built these…

The idea came through Internet browsing, and it happened that I liked the Tetris game when I was young. It turned out that the making of these units are not trivial, especially to keep all the right angles true. All pieces were made out of plywood, with poplar edging. The carcasses were built with miter joints strengthened with splines, finished with two coats of General Purpose Javagel stain, and topped with a couple of coats of poly. The back boards were dyed with wood dyes. I made the square pieces into small cabinets with doors, which turned out to be quite useful for my son.

This is a very creative project and the colors are real eye catchers.

More like Tetris meets Rubik’s’ cube.
Well done.

Awesome work. I’d never want to fill the shelves so I could keep rearranging them indefinitely.

That is beautiful, and I can only imagine how much work. Wow. I would absolutely love those in the basement video-game cave I share with the kids, but I don’t know if I have the patience for flawless work and measuring that would take! Congrats!
