Materials: Lack shelves of various length, Dioder lights. table saw, 2-part epoxy, black sharpie pen for touch-up
Description: I wanted to add lighted display shelving to a wall of my family room but had some specific limits. It had to fit above the TV, low enough for the speaker, etc. I also wanted to add general room lighting in a way that would not cast glare on the TV screen.
Sketching out various arrangements of Lack shelves just looked chaotic until I connected them with verticals. Then they became this coherent linear composition like a Mondrian painting.
I used a table saw to notch the intersections and corners to get a smooth finish around the corners, epoxy to glue them all into a unit, and a black sharpie for any chips left by the saw.
