Hi, guys!
This guy has designed something that I really liked so I decided to do something like that for myself. Make this bookshelf was a big challenge, but the satisfaction is greater!

Really nice. This is one that I can’t let the wife see or my next in line project will be pushed back a bit.

I’ve seen those before, and really liked them. Yours looks very good. Almost better than the original.

Did your use solid wood, or is it hollow on the inside?

Wow, nice design and execution. Each piece being tapered and sprouting from the wall is a nice effect. Wife heck, I want something like that myself. My only question is what type of joinery did you use?

Thank you all. The structure is hollow and the elements are simply glued. Before gluing everything has to be accurately processed.
