I am going to try to sell some of my woodworking projects at a ‘Market’ and needed a way to display the boxes so made another leaning shelf unit. Pine uprights with oak veneer lumber core shelves, all stained dark walnut and wiped with Spar. Unit is 6’ tall x 31” wide.

That is a very nice display and some mitey good looking boxes sitting on it. Good luck at the Market…they will sell quickly. How is your shelf balanced in the back? I don’t see any rear legs or support.

The craftsmanship is in the detail and you nailed it. The little happy face box is awesome.

The shelf and bxxes are very nice, I wish you great success at the “Market”, I’ve found it to be very fickle. For the amount of time it takes to make things, what people are actually willing to pay is much less. However, I was intrigued by the row of grinding, polishing machines behind it. I wish I had room for something like that in my shop. Great idea!!

I think you’ll get lots of “lookers”. I hope you have better luck than I have.

Greg – There is no other support/rear legs. That’s what drew me to this design. It just leans against the wall. Look at my project page and see one in my daughter’s house to see how it works. They are remarkably stable and I have stood on the lower shelf with no tipping/wobbling. I may try a knock down model with through wedged tenons for my next one. Dr. Ken – The grinders/buffers are a leftover from my bit and spur building days. They don’t see much use nowdays.

Fantastic collection of bandsaw boxes, i wasn’t even sure of whatthey were untill a pal of mine let me see his version.

I think I’m going to have a go at making my own, I may take some inspiration from your designs….....if that’s OK. Thanks for sharing.
