Yes, it’s another OSB project. Some furniture re-arranging left us without enough bookshelf space, AND no place to put the (old-style) TV set. The solution was to build a set of bookshelves shallow enough that we could fit it in the corner of the room, and then I added a rounded shelf (see photo #5) to support the TV set. The rounded shelf is actually bolted through to the fixed shelves in the center of the bookcase (photo #3), so that it’s not going anywhere.
The shelving units are tied together in the back (empty corner) with plywood triangles to form a rigid corner unit, and then bolted to the upper wall plates (see photo #4) because we live in earthquake country.
Since I have built so many of this particular type of shelving unit (literally dozens of them), the only “plans” I bothered with was masking tape on the floor of the shop (photo #6) to make sure that they would fit the intended footprint.
All material is OSB and slices of 2X4 cut to 1X2 plus some scrap plywood. The TV set is also anchored to the shelving units with plastic plumbers tape, using fender washers, so as prevent stress from stretching the holes.
The finish is three coats of Minwax Sanding Sealer.
