Corner Shelf 2.0

Corner Shelf 2.0

Royce Barber
My first corner shelf was great, but I wasn't sure how to create it out of a block of wood. I wanted it to be something anyone (including myself) can do. So this version let's you get a chunk of wood or extremely hard foam, draw your template, cut holes with a power drill where your cut marks will start and stop. Then use any saw you can get to cut off the red area. I'll be using a hand router so I can make smooth curves at an exact depth. Like my other shelf, this sits in the corner of a bedroom (or any room) and in my situation it sits 5inches above my bed. It sits on 8 screws into the drywall and one corner screw into a wall stud. You should be able to jump on it when it's done, unless it's foam. After the shape is cut, I'll spraypaint mine, or use a foam brush to dab paint into the nooks. Don't over spray, you don't want drips, just let a layer dry and spray another faint layer. One pocket of this design has a hole in the bottom, which is for your phone charger cord. I'll put another hole for my smart assistant speaker's power cord. Under the shelf, you can attach LED light strips if you like.
