This is awesome. I'd like to build one for my room as my bookshelf is overflowing at this point. Mind sending me the plans? email@example.com
Sorry, send info to firstname.lastname@example.org
This is quite eye catching! I would like some hints regarding wall attachment/strength as well as what did you use to connect the pieces? Very nice.
This design has it all - creativity, aesthetic appeal, extremely functional, apparent ease of construction, and great use of materials. It wouldn't surprise me if something like this finds it's way to IKEA or Crate & Barrel. A smaller version would be perfect to display my large collection of DVDs and Blue Rays as wall art. Let me know if you can borrow your plans - email@example.com. Thanks and great job!
I have seen something similar and smaller for CDs but, it was symetrical. Your asymetrical design really makes this stand out and is very practical, as you say, for different book sizes. I have wanted to do something similar to this for a while for bath towels in the bathroom. I want to make the cubbies small enough to hold a rolled up towel. By changing the towel colors, you can easily change the decoration in the room (red and green for Chrismas, red, white, and blue for fourth of July, etc.).
Can you tell me how the case is attached to the wall? I would think there would need to be lots of attachement points to bear that much weight.
Thanks and Great Job!
I particularly liked the way this case takes up the wasted space caused by different sized books.
I would like to make ONE for myself if plans are available

Great design. You've got my vote. I'd like plans too (no intention to ever do more than 1 for myself). Bob watson xtra co nz. Cheers.
Awesome. This is was truly unexpected. Very rarely does someone post something like this so far outside the box. Great creative work! Nice Job, got my vote!
That is the most outside the box thinking of book storage solution I think I have ever seen! Bravo! Very simplistic and very creative. Cool, cool, cool! Nice work. It's funny how simplistic the double lapped joints are but it came together soooooooo perfect. Great! Definitely not what I expected to see here.
Definitely the most creative as well as attractive and functional bookcase. Hey EVAN007 just give them a few hints and construction details, let them figure out sizes and layout by themselves. Too many people just follow plans when they should learn how to lay out a project to fit the needs of the space it goes into. I would be quite interested in a few more details of the construction !
Very nice work.
Really wild!!! Ya' got my vote.
That is definitely thinking outside the box, awesome. I also would like to know how you secured it to the wall. I would love the plans. Davis39@cox.net.
This case is just amazing! You definitely have my vote . I would like your plan for this project. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org I don't like building more than one of anything so mass production is out of the question. Thanks.
Wow, an amazingly creative piece. You got my vote for sure. I have a close friend who just bought his first home and I have been struggling to think of the appropriate house-warming gift, I would love if you would share your plans. I promise I won't mass produce them and I will send you a photo of the finished product if you like. My email is email@example.com if you would be so kind. From the empty photo it looks like you ran some flat metal stock horizontally across the back of the piece to be able to mount it to the wall framing, is that correct? Thanks so much.
Looks like it should be in an art gallery
Wow! That is something. How did you attach that much weight to a regular wall?
That is a beautiful piece! I like how it addresses the various sizes of books, as well as its being off the floor to make the room look less cluttered.
I would love your plans and notes if you are still offering them. My email is emergingogre ( a tt ) gmail ( d o tt ) comm (without the second M and the correct symbols, of course).
veryy cool!! nice job!
If you're really interested in building one i can hook you up my plans and explain. Just don't mass produce with out my permission.
very very very cool
thanks for sharing..
( can I steal your design??)
