Mt daughter asked me to make her a set of shelves for her DVD, Stereo, etc and said she had seen a set that leaned against the wall. I told her I needed pics as I had never seen leaning shelves. As luck would have it my Wood Mag arrived the next day with leaning shelves project! This set is 77” tall x 24” wide. The shelves are 17,15,13,11, and 9” deep. I am amazed at the strength of these. I stood on the lowest shelf and it doesnt tip or move away from the wall. A quick and easy build AND it made my daughter happy [my goal in life]!!!

That’s really good, Doc. My wife’s been wanting something like that, so I might make her 1 2.

Neat! This thing is stable to use or even stand on without any wall anchors?
