I welded up steel sub-frames in order to provide a very firm and rigid foundation for my shelves.

I then clad the frames with wood. The end result is a set of very attractive and durable shelves without any vertical supports - they appear to float.
Cool, looks like cable tray for data cable. How did you cover the metal with wood?
Hi Scobu,<br><br>I'm glad you like it.<br><br>I cut the wood to to size and added a small trim to the front in order to make the shelves look thicker.<br><br>The weight of the wood hold the shelves in place really well and there was no need for any additional mounting brackets.<br><br>The shelves have plenty of space to conceal cables or ribbon lighting.
