This is the display shelf /divider I build for our house .
It is made entirely from MDF and is the cabinet I build the the doors for in my previous post .
http://lumberjocks.com/kiefer/projects
It is a nice addition and blocks the view into the bathroom across the hallway .
The back panel is made the same way as the doors 3/8 MDF with 3/8 overlay and the slightly curved shelves are supported by 5mm shelf pegs so they can be moved in the the future .
Handles for the doors still to come .
Some of my votive holders and boxes now have a place to be displayed along with other items that are dear to me .
As a little tip when screwing MDF in the edge , pre drill the screw hole at an angle ,that way the board will not split open when the screw is driven in .
MDF seems similar to plywood which is made up of layers and also splits easily , low root thread type screws work best .

Nice work. I love built in projects. Just makes a room feel more than just 4 walls. Good job and I love the back.

That is one nice looking cabinet, Kiefer. Thanks for sharing!! Did you spray it white?
One thin I do with holes that I don’t trust to hold is to pre-drill the hole, run a screw in and out and then put tight bond in the hole with a toothpick and let it set up in the threads. I do that lot on refrigerator magnets that I turn on the lathe. I mount them on a madrel with #6 screw in the middle. The screw will strip out of a lot of woods so I put the glue in the solidify the threads.

Great alternative to a partition wall – looks nicer and is more functional too. Interesting tip on running in the screws (mine go in crooked anyhow !!!). You are a brave man to work with MDF. That stuff is hard on you and your tools (killer dust) !

Love the “sweep” of the shelves. Very nice and looks great in the house.
