My shelf-project

by Chris June. 09, 2008 3016 views

As I announced in my post from 19 of April, I was starting to a new shelf. And this evening it was finished.

Used laminated pine-timber for the construction and I did morst of the work at the carpenting-workshop at my work.

And the result was quite nice..

Buying the timber..

The wood is placed on my work, ready to become a shelf…

Nice to have good tools..

Milling machine..

Mill…

Milling machine..

This is how I put together the shelf…

Using special glue and good pressure to laminate..

Beautiful…

Ready for painting..

It is quite a paintjob..

Finally I`ve got the parts home in my livingroom…

Starting on the montage…

Its nearly there..

The last finishing…

My brother-in-law is shooting me painting..

Looks nice does it not?

I really envy your talent! Creating your own furniture... that must be a really great feeling... not to mention how much disappointment you can save, as Ikea shelfs never fit and could never hold so many books and other stuff! Wonderful!

Chris, that is fabulous! What a great talent you have! It really did turn out beautifully. Are those record albums on the bottom shelf? :)
