    These invisible bookshelves are great! If you don't want to destroy an old book yourself or simply can't be bothered to make one then you can now buy them on ebay, I spotted this listing for a ready made bookshelf the other day.

    you know, if you stir your paint next time, your blue wont be all blotchy before rolling it on. Like it is now. p.s. Have you read the Left Behind series? i know i know, i was just saying cause i saw all the books. I just figured you had too.

    I checked out the instructable for this project. Its cool seeing a finished project by other viewers. Me likes. Perhaps I will put one up on my son's bedroom. How long did it take you to complete the project?

    Ongeveer een half uurtje. Heb zelf de bladzijden niet geschroefd, maar geniet,was een stuk gemakkelijker.succes!!!!!

    Once you have all of the materials, making the L bracket for the book is a little time consuming, measure twice, cut once! Take your time with the screws, because that was the hardest for me. Putting it up was easy. (find a place that won't collapse under the weight!) It's obviously over night for the drying time, but construction probably took me a couple of hours. Take your time with it, and it'll come out really nice.

    Pretty cool dude. My invisible Book shelf is close to being completed. I just have to wait for the glue to dry. Before I do put it up, I was thinking about a way of carving out a secret compartment on the inside flap of the top cover. Meh, we'll see. ;)
