Wood - the most convenient material to work with.Wooden shelves can be simple, complex shape, open and closed, vertical, horizontal and angular.Taking the basic version, it is possible to assemble several modules of the shelf and give it the most incredible views.To serve the product for a long time, you should choose the right wood: boards must be perfectly smooth, completely dry and free of cracks, cavities and traces of mold.

During assembly required:

  • hacksaw;
  • drill;
  • building level;
  • pencil and ruler;
  • board 16 mm thick;
  • stain;
  • varnish for wood;
  • sander;
  • screws, brackets, dowels.

As an example, a simple rectangular shelf 250 mm wide, 300 mm high and 1100 mm long.

Step 1. Marking

boards laid flat on the table and transfer the measurements from the drawing.The height of the sidewalls 268 mm must be equal, as they will be located between the upper and lower part: the wall thickness of the board height + x 2 = 300 mm.

Step 2. Cutting boards

If layout exactly matches the pattern, you can start sawing.It is best to use for this jigsaw, then slices obtained perfectly smooth and neat.You should now have 2 long and 2 short workpiece.

Step 3. Processing blanks

Grinding board

Before assembly, each workpiece need oshlifovat, cover the stain and varnish.If you plan on a shelf just paint, the workpiece is processed antiseptic primer - and service life is increased, and the paint lays down smoother.

Step 4. Assembling products

bottom board is laid flat on a flat surface.With the ends of the blank back down to 8 mm and carry 2 straight lines parallel slices.Now, on these lines is necessary to note two points at a distance of 5 cm from the edge, and drill holes for the screws there.On top of the blank does the same.When all the holes are ready, on the bottom board mounted side workpiece and fasten screws.On top of the second board is applied and also fix the self-tapping screws sidewalls.

Assembling shelves

At the ends of the side walls of the fixed brackets in the wall of drilled holes for dowels, insert screws and twist so that they were about 5 mm.Plugs should be placed strictly horizontally, so before the scheduled drilling line with the level.It now remains only to fasten the brackets to the fasteners and hang a shelf.At the back wall of the product you want, you can score a piece of plywood, and insert the glass front.

to such a simple regiment became more original, you can replace one side wall stump of a thick branch.To do this, choose a flat thread with a diameter of about 7-8 cm with a smooth clean bark, saw off a piece of a length of 28 cm, cut all side branches.Chock primer treated, dried and varnish.The bark should not be removed.After drying nail blank is inserted between the top and bottom of the board and firmly fasten with screws.

On the basis of this drawing can be different variations of wall shelves.For example, to reduce the length of 400 mm and fabricate immediately unit 3-4.Then place them on each other in a staggered manner and fasten together by means of metal plates.Or just fix them on the wall separately located a short distance from each other.

Blanks makes the scheme described above, only the top and bottom boards are made up of two elements, with the sawed ends at an angle.The manufacturing process of such shelves is quite simple:

  • halves top coat with the board at the ends with glue and clamp the clamps;
  • repeat the same procedure with the lower board;
  • when the glue is dry, all the blank cover stained or primed;
  • on the top and bottom of the workpiece fixing point line and drilled holes;
  • inserted into the side wall and fix them with screws.

Then fasten the brackets and fix the shelf to the adjacent walls.

Materials wall shelves Advantages and disadvantages
wood: plywood, chipboard, MDF and other relatively easy to work with this material, it looks nice,naturally and effectively, its life is big enough, especially if pretreated

Glass Transparent wall shelves create an atmosphere of ease and comfort in the house.Of course, to do with their hands glass design will be difficult, but if you vse-taki, decide on their own to do all the work, the glass will have a fairly long and very careful work, especially in the design of various shelves planned cuts

ends of each blank is cut at an angle of 45 or 90 degrees.The chart indicated the first option, so you will need for sawing miter box.It is important to set the miter box on the board to sections were symmetrical.If the ends cut off incorrectly folded shelf will not work.

Step 3. Assembling construction

ends of the parts smeared with glue, tightly compressed and additionally fix Furniture screw with slot.Conventional screws do not fit here.At each joint will require at least 2 screws.Both parts of the shelf is applied to the wall, put on a level and a pencil mark mounting points.Then drill holes for dowels, screws to fasten the shelf brackets and hang on the wall structure.Instead brackets often use decorative shelf supports "pelican".board, hanging on -

  • 4 leather belt 75 cm long;
  • 4 long screws with the plastic plugs;
  • 4 short screw;
  • building level;
  • line;
  • a sharp knife;
  • drill.

Step 1. Preparation belts

Sections belts must be perfectly smooth, so they are cut with a knife, if necessary.Fold each in half the belt ends are pressed against the table, retreating from the edge of 2 cm and drilled a neat through-hole drill.The same is done with the remaining three.

Step 2. Attaching the straps to

wall On the wall using a level determined by two points at a distance of 60 cm. Drilled holes and insert plastic dowels.Folded in half the belt is applied to one of the holes and fix the screw length - it turns a large loop on the wall.Next attach another such loop.

Step 3. Install shelves

The loop slips oshlifovannuyu board and align it horizontally.To regiment not shifted adjacent to the wall of the belts at the very short planks bolted screws.Now under this shelf is another, just repeat the above steps.The result is a light and neat bunk shelf.If desired, you can add another 1-2 tiers.For manufacturing

described above can be used not only wood shelves, but plywood and chipboard sheets.The latter option is used most often as chipboard low weight, high strength, practicality and durability.When assembling shelves of this material necessarily all sections okleivayut melamine edge in the color of the sheet.

  • adhesive tape;
  • line;

Unusual shelf from scrap materials

If you have some spare time and a desire to experiment, you can create a very unusual shelves on the wall of improvised materials.For example, an original looks from the corner shelf plastic pipes.For its production need stretches of sewer pipes and angled sgonki.By the wall shelf is mounted with screws with dowels.
