Making a honeycomb wall shelf yourself - what do you need?
- chop saw
- Wood screws or tapping screws size 1 1/4 "(32 mm)
- Drill and Drill Insert (The drills should be a bit smaller than the screws)
- spirit level
- Orbital sanders or sandpaper
- Tape measure or folding rule
- Wall holder, pencil
- three fence boards or other matching wooden planks from the hardware store
Tools and materials
Measure the boards in peace and cut
You will need a total of 15 pieces of wood. Each piece must be 30 cm long and cut at 30 degrees angle. This means that each new board will have a longer and a shorter side, as you can see in the picture below.
The side with the more beautiful grain is the shorter one - it will be on the outside of the wall shelf
Follow the instructions and stick the boards together as shown
Finally, drill holes in the boards for the screws
When the wall shelf is ready, you only need to sand it out with the sandpaper or the orbital sander
Mount wall brackets where you want your honeycomb shelf
With the help of the spirit level, you can be sure that your wall shelf is standing straight and at the same time you can mark the place for the next holder. Secure again with screws and you're done!
Enjoy your work with a big smile
