Shelf augmentation
Posted by keavdog on Monday, March 1, 2021 3:39 PM

I put up shelves a couple years ago and promptly filled them up.  I was poking around online and found these acrylic shelves from the container store and essentially doubled my shelf.  I'll add more as I need.  

There were some casualties.... but I can repair

Now to fill them up !

Thanks,

John

Clever.  If something does accidentally fall in the fish tank let it be the shark.

Very nice idea! I know those wood shelves wouldn't dare fall. Nice mounting brackets. I bet those are all going into studs.

We sailing ship modelers are green with envy.

 Modeling is an excuse to buy books.

LOL!
 
 
John,
 
I still love how well the original shelves look, and then adding these clear shelves is pure genius!

That's a clever idea. The shelves and the collection look awesome!

Nice use of the pipe stock! It's very useful material. I do lighting work at a small theater, and we use stock like that to make mounts for stage lights, pivots for rotating flats, small moveable platforms, so many uses.

The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen.

Yes the pipes are in studs - they aren't going anywhere.

I also used a 1" pipe and big beefy flanges to hang clothes on in the laundry room.  Pipe stock is solid and has a cool industrial/rustic vibe.

Thanks,

John

Awsome Keavdog. Incidentally, my Tommy's War Light Horseman arrived today. Stunning kit! If you need any references, just sing out. I have the complete original uniform, accoutrements, rifle and saddle.

Right on!  Great little kit.  I wanted to find an old historex horse to practice on by I can't find them for a decent price.  I would appreciate any reference pics you have - thanks very much!

Thanks,

John

I think I can help with the Historex horse. If I find one do you want me to send it? If yes, PM me with your postal address. As for references I'll get right on it.

Thanks for the offer - I'll poke around for something to practice on.

 

My new shelves and my strat don't get along :/

This guy jumped of the shelf due to power cords and distortion

Thanks,
