In our continued effort to get our tiny house situated, I finally completed the office shelving. We wanted something to go around the bar, and after going through many plans for the shelving, we finally decided on a combination of wood shelves and steel brackets to hold everything into place.
Since we’re renting, I didn’t want to invest in permanent shelving that we couldn’t reuse. By not building the entire thing out of wood, it’ll be much easier to take apart and reassemble.
I built the left side and right side separately and anchored each into the wall, with one metal bracket on each side touching the floor for added support. The trickiest part was putting in the top shelf for our large collection of game boards.
Because two brackets prevented the top shelf from easily sliding into place, I had to carve out a notch to fit it in.
As you may know from Trevor’s post on the game Careers, we collect old board games. While I was searching Etsy for Derby themed goodness yesterday, I came across tons of horse themed vintage games. We own a 1970s version of Gambler, which involves betting on horse races among other things, and Trevor is a regular Brett Maverick when it comes board game gambling. We may need to get our hands on one of these awesome horse-racing games.
My brother, Logan Walters, has been working on a “3DS Recovered” project, where he’s redesigning every Nintendo 3DS game he acquires. Here’s a few of my favorites, and you can see all the ones he’s done so far on his blog.
