In this I will show you how to create a driftwood bookshelf. You do not need many materials and most of them are pretty cheap and the major one is free depending on where you live. You will need to find out if it is legal to take driftwood from the beaches in your state not all states allow this to happen, but some of them do.
You will need:
Driftwood quantity depends on the design you are going for.
Twine I purchased mine from Wal-Mart.
Glass for the shelving I purchased mine at home depot.
Some type of anchor to secure it to you wall(just in case it does not end up all that stable)

Step 1: Get your driftwood

This step is very easy it can take some time though, but who doesn't enjoy a walk on the beach anyways?
So how does this thing support itself without falling over? Seems to me like there might need to be more detailed instructions to ensure that it actually stands up on its own. Cool idea, though!
This came out great. How much lashing did you have to use to make it feel sturdy?
