    Leaning Bookshelves with LED Lighting

    Yes, the shelf (and the board you'll need to purchase for it) is 4' long. However, that includes the two sections on either side of the upright, so the inner portion is less than that.However, really, you can make the shelf as long or as short as you want, depending on how much space you want. The only thing that really matters is where you cut the groove to slip in the uprights.The shelves in my version do indeed have different depths--Bottom (1st & 2nd shelves): 11.25" deep Middle (3rd & 4th shelves: 9.25" deepTop (5th shelf): 7.25" deepThe only one that's really critical is the very top shelf, because the back of that shelf sits flush with the back of the upright, both against the wall (see image).Thanks for the interest, and good luck!
