Introduction: Floor Shelf

Picture of Floor Shelf

Hello guys, in this project we will make a floor shelf. The dimensions of the shelf is about 175 cm high and the distance between each shelf is 40 cm.

As you can notice from the photo, the width of each of horizontal shelf is decreasing as we go up.

So, lets get started with this project.

Note: this project was made in FABLAB Dhahran by Hussain Alhudhud

Step 3: Finishing

You can customize the finishing the of this project depending on the look and the color of the place you are planing to use this shelf in.

plywood with wood stain will give it amazing look and feel. I started by sanding all the edges to get clean and smooth edges.

After that I used black paint and this is the final look of the project.

Do you need to stabilize it in some way? I love the look and the simplicity.

FABLAB Dhahran (author)mrsmerwin2017-04-26

Thanks :) .

not at all., the material we used is heavy enough to stabilize it.

I think I will build one to replace a useless end table that I have never liked. Thanks.
