Floating shelves for books + Vinyl storage

Submitted by careaud on Wed, 03/24/2021 - 14:50

I love Ana Whites's site. I go to it all the time when I have project ideas. The Video tutorials, combined with plans, is just amazing. Plus, the brag pages of people that have done projects from what they found here. Thank you Ana.

The floating shelves part was from Ana's site. The other part was done using my own plans (I used SketchUp to draw them)

My wife added the books, plants, and decorations, and I finally opened the dusty boxes that contained my insane LP collection. The experience has nothing to do with steaming music, it is far more complete.

I used plant-lantern brackets to prevent books from falling from the sides of the shelves. All done, this is great.

I would like to change the main picture, but I get strange messages from the site when I do this.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
This part is hard, as wood cost has never been this expensive. Also, the plant hocks were rather expensive. In fact, I don't want to know the total I've spent on this, but glad I did it myself, otherwise, cost would have doubled, if not more.
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Knotty pine
Finish Used
Hard wood floor stain (2 coats on the sides, 3 on the main surfaces).
Recommended Skill Level
Beginner

This bookshelf looks great. But, I doubt that I can do it quickly and on my own (if I can at all). But, I really need a place to store books. Since I'm a bookworm and love printed books, I don't have much space to store them. And yesterday I ordered a new book. I read on this site https://freebooksummary.com/category/the-importance-of-being-earnest the summary of the book The Importance of Being Earnest and I decided that I should read it. Therefore, I want to challenge myself and try to make such a shelf. Thanks!
