I wanted to test my skill set a little further by setting myself a project that involved miter cuts and shelving. So why not a hexagon shelf ! The initial sizing was pretty straight forward as was the miter cuts, the gluing and brad nailing the 30 degree cuts were what i had worried about. A tad fiddly but i got there in the end. I had not initially though of a backing to the shelf, i had a spare piece of ply so thought why not. The colour scheme is in uniform to our hallway which initially were i had thought on hanging it.

  • What an awesome way to add some interest an texture to your hallway space! Great use of scrap wood too- it's always great to see spare materials put to good use.

  • That is a hexagon (6 sides), not an octagon (8 sides). Still nice, though.
