Honeycomb Shelves 2.0

Added on by Joshua Rhodes.

Last year I made some honeycomb shelves out of reclaimed wood. That project was one of my favorites, and since we couldn't bring them with us to Phoenix, I decided to make some new ones. Since I don't have have a table saw, I decided to make the shelves out of fencing planks from Lowes. Not only do they come in uniform thickness and width, which is handy,They're cheap (the whole project cost less than 15 bucks) and they have cool natural texture and color. I wrote a tutorial last year for  Design Sponge post. The only difference with these is that instead of pinning, I screwed the wood together with 1" drywall screws (pre drilling to prevent cracking).

To mount the shelves, I used old brackets I saved when I took down some ugly blinds.

Always save stuff like that, you never know when you'll need them!

After the glue was dry, I took a sander to the shelves to give it more character and texture.

This how they turned out!
