Steampunk Shelves Project
I have remodeled my office. I am changing from the "Swords and Stuff" theme I have had for time immemorial to a mixture of classic scifi and steampunk. Recently I was at an art show put on by the Art, Love, Magic group. There I was inspired by the use of copper pipe to create interesting shapes and possibilities. I went home and withing a few days had put up my first attempt at these shelves. It was ok, but not very stable and would not hold up books without extra support.
I let it sit for a few weeks and then finished the design I would end with. It would server as a Hardback shelf, DVD shelf and audio/video cable run from my PC to the TV. The new Phase 1 looks like this.
