Tiny room with too many books, comics, cameras and other assorted miscellany. I like the idea of building my own furniture but as a Systems Engineer by trade I am far more at home with Matlab than a tenon saw (what is a tenon saw). I also have no technical knowledge of wood and related paraphernalia required to turn it into stuff.
To build easy a set of simple to construct low cost collapsible shelves to keep my stuff off the floor.
This design doesn't use nails or screws and doesn't require any sawing.
Instead the design uses 22 holes threaded with paracord inorder to suspend the shelves.
Note: As I've mention I have no technical knowledge of carpentry, and a hazy recollection of 3rd Year Structural Mechanics so any corrections or tips no matter how trivial would be greatly appreciated.
Step 1: Materials
Power drill with 5mm bit
4 x Hardwood dowls (2.5 cm dia x 100 cm)
3 x Hardwood Wood Planks (100cm x 22cm x 2cm)
Paracord or similar
Note: My material choice was probably a bit conservative lighter thinner planks could probably be used just as effectively.
Step 2: How it works
A rear 'X' shear web provides a shear support to stop the shelves from folding over sideways.
