I made these shelves from 2 pine 2×10s. I finished them with stain and polyurethane. They can be arranged many different ways on the wall.

It never ceases to amaze me what can be created out of essentially construction lumber. Very nice.

Nice work on the shelves. They look great. Do you have a hand in any of the art on the shelves?

Those shelves look nice. I like this style of shelves, I just can’t talk the boss (my wife) into letting me put some up in our house.
What type of joinery did you use on the mitered corners? Are they just butted together and glued?

Nice work. I’m actually building a similar project for a client. I think I’ve found good hangers for them, but was wondering what you used.

Thanks,

Chris

The joinery was 45 degree miters cut on the tablesaw, glued and finish nailed through each side. I didn’t have a biscuit joiner at the time, but I would use biscuits on the miter next time.
As for the hangers, I used metal eyehole hangers on the back spaced at 16 or 32 inches so it would hang on studs. You must have very accurate placeement with your wall screws and you are more limited on wall placement if your looking to hit studs.

Thanks Woody,

One more question: I can only find the metal keyholes in 1-5/8 which is too big for the stock I’m using (1-1/4” bubinga). Were you able to find some smaller and how strong are they? As of now, I’m planning on using these: http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=17507&filter=invisible%20shelf%20hangers , but they’ll require extremely precise drilling and fastening.

Thanks for the help.

Proutboy,
Those wall anchors should work. The keyhole I got were 1 5/8” tall but I mounted them at the vertical intersections.
