Hello all, I'm making some box shelfs that need to take books. They'll be fixed along one side and the back, into brick wall.
I was going to use studs as well, tensioned at the front to try and beef up the stiffness and wondered what people thought of the design. The top and bottom 'skins' are going to be glued and pinned, the back and side baton screwed to the wall and the studs will I think use anchors, not sure yet but I'd really welcome any ideas.
I had thought of those proprietary fixings from hafele but they don't look long enough for these shelves.
Anyhow, hope this is of interest or worthy of comment.
