This was a week long project but it was on and off as I took my time amoung other projects. I built this wall wrap shelving unit in the spare bedroom to hold my over flow of boxs that I’m making, the shelving unit is made out of cypress, I had the lumber yard mill the boards for me to save me some time, I first hung the wall strip then made the mounting brackets using the bandsaw and rounded the edges on the router table. The long wall strips I used a 1/4 hand rounter to round the edges.

Thanks for viewing :)

Very nice.

But you know, I think it would look even better if you put a model train on there…

A space that would normally not be used for storage and display is now a wonderful display area. Nice work.

That’s nice looking…now you need a choo-choo train running around it. (or maybe the boxes you built it for).

Randy,

Another nice project.

I see you did go with finishing both sides of the shelving. What did you use, the lacquer?

This is a great shelf Randy. A couple o my Harley trains would be awesome goin round n round up thar. :) I see what you meant about my lumber rack, but, I don’t know if you looked very closely, but, I actually dadoed the arms in the uprites, screwed and glued from the side and the back. After attaching to the wall studs, I stepped up on every one o those arms like a ladder, and they didn’t budge at all. Thanx for your input. I think they’ll hold up, but, before I took the pics, I did consider something similar to what you are sayin, but, I don’t think I’ll need any.
